Time to join the annual migration northwards

Every year at this time, thousands of cruisers head north out of Florida to the northeast to not only escape the heat but to get out of the hurricane belt. I will be leaving St Augustine tomorrow morning after a very nice stay here which included a trip down under to my sister's wedding in Sydney.
I wish that I could say that this photo shows a crowd seeing me off from Castillo de San Marcos but they are there to witness the daily firing of the cannons over the Matanzas River here in St Augustine.
I always get butterflies in my stomach, the day before I leave on a 4 day sail, but the boat is as ship shape as can be with my Epirb, VHS with DSC and a good forecast.
Fair winds and following seas.
