Halifax River YC at Daytona – Seafood buffet at the club

Sunrise at Halifax River YC
Had a great sunrise today, it’s rising so late that we have no trouble getting up in time to see it. It was another great day with blue skies and temps in the 70’s. I think they want some rain since the wildfire warning is at the next to highest level as posted at all the firehouses.
We bought the smallest Thanksgiving turkey we could find and will cook it for ourselves and Joe Mastri who’s joining us for Thursday dinner on our boat in Vero Beach. We’ll have a PYC south Thanksgiving!

Another view of Halifax River YC
On most Friday nights the YC has a seafood buffet. The layout is fabulous! We started with oyster soup followed by a salad and then a selection of main dishes that included clams linguini, snocrab legs, chicken, seafood casserole, mussels, shrimp, sliced roast beef and more. It was all you could eat for $24.95! This was with a view of the harbor and a rising full moon with great service, nice. We are quite fond of this yacht club and will certainly stop here on the way back in the spring.

A familiar sight in Daytona
We planned the rest of our trip this morning and now will probably reach our marina where we’ll leave the boat for December by 11/28 and start north in our rental car on 11/30 or so. Hopefully we’ll reach home in time for the PYC Christmas party on 12/4.
