Daytona here 

We are still allowed on the beach and there are not many people. We are a little south from the heavy tourist areas 

So we walk and read, keeping a good distance from others and then stay home 

Lois, I remember you from many years ago and it’s good to see you posting 😊

Stay well fellow cruisers!

 

 

The spring breakers and irresponsible boaters ruined that for us.  Broward finally closed boat ramps and marinas to recreational boaters, and the beaches have been closed.  Sucks.  No parks, no beaches, no boating.

Yes I know

The Daytona city folks have been going back and forth about closing the beach

Parks are closed

They closed the ramps to the beach and have reduced parking in the lots.

It really does stink as it’s the only place to go were you can keep you distance, get some excercise and enjoy the beauty God has given us.

For us, that was State Parks, too.  Shame those were closed.  Our favorite parks are quite empty and distancing is obviously no issue.  This was the day before they closed.  Not exactly crowded.

Trying to find a reason to get out of my pajamas today.

 

I think I've seen everything on Netflix.

We are snowbirds from New Hampshire and have been at a condo on Hollywood Beach since the beginning of the year.  We have pretty much been in self quarantine by choice for the past two weeks.  We did make one final trip to the grocery store on March 15th and went out again on St. Patty’s Day tp pick up a prescription and get a take out corned beef and cabbage dinner.

 

The beach and condo pool have been closed for almost two weeks now.  We have read a great deal and have watched way too much television.  We try and take a walk daily and have enjoyed the warmth of our balcony for hours each day.  The weather  during the past two weeks has been awesome.

 

The car is packed and we are heading straight up I-95 to New Hampshire tomorrow morning.  We expect to be home by mid-week.   We have a good supply of disinfectant wipes to use each time we stop. I think that we shall be fine until we reach Delaware.  After that I am concerned with traveling  what will be a short distance through New Jersey and New York, but we do not intend to make any stops there.

 

Life as we know it has changed and it will be sometime before we all get back to normal.  We have a cruise booked for November.  Right now I am inclined to cancel, but we shall wait until mis summer to make a final decision.

Today we are taking the boat out.

 

FWC is asking boaters to stay 50 feet apart so we will do that.

Yall are the opposite of most people.  We counted so many New York license plates yesterday that we could not believe it. 

 

People were completely hostile to them, yelling, "Go Home to New York!".

 

I think the coronavirus quarantine has made nice people nicer, and nasty people nastier.

So jealous!!  I'll have to live vicariously through you!

 

Not a lot of boats out on Biscayne since they closed the marinas and boat ramps. It just adds to the the strangeness of seeing all these cruise ships docked and anchored off shore!

Martin County and St Lucie counties have each closed their trailer boat ramps, which severely restricts the ability to use the waterways. Boats kept in docking slips can be used. The restriction followed widely documented TV footage of keg parties on sandbars, boats lashed together, and other violations.

 

After huge uproar, the counties agreed that some boat launch ramps will be opened to commercial fishing boats only. Police will check ID, etc.

 

(Trailer boat ramps are sloped, paved access points which allow a boat trailer to be backed into the water and a boat floated from it.)
