|Sunrise leaving Charleston|
A lot of the trip was just uneventful motoring across the ocean. And it was wonderful. We had a couple of maverick dolphins come visit us and ride our bow wave while we laughed and barked. Roux barked, that is. We saw a few boats but not many. The trip was to be 168 miles and we, basically, only had two waypoints to aim for so we just had a nice boat ride.
|Sunrise arriving St Mary's Inlet|
We were working against the falling tide this time so it was a little slower trip through the inlet but no issues. At St Mary's Inlet, if you turn left you are in Fernandina Beach, Florida. If you turn right, you are in Georgia. For insurance purposes, we need to stay north of Florida until November 1. So, right turn it is. We arrived at Cumberland Island, Georgia at around 10:00 am on Tuesday morning. Not bad.
The first order of business is Roux business. Drop the dinghy, motor, yada yada, yada. By 11:00, we were making brunch in the galley.
We skipped most of Georgia and the shallow sections of the ICW. We are wearing shorts and T-shirts. There are palm trees, palmettos and live oaks with Spanish Moss. The anchorage is full of cruiser sailboats, many of whom are also waiting here because their insurance has the same clause as our's. We are feeling pretty good.
