Traveled 37 miles in 5 hours arriving in Fernandina Beach at 1:30pm and had a wonderful time exploring.
Rise and shine at Brunswick Landing Marina – no poop sucking for me this time.
Captain Bob trying to figure out where to put the fuel. We loaded 200 gallons of diesel at $1.89 per gallon. Great price as most of the marina’s we passed we in the high two’s to mid three’s. Captain Bob was ecstatic.
Betty takes on water then plots the course on the iPad for todays adventure.
Departing Brunswick via the Brunswick River.
Coming out of Jekyll River getting ready to cross the big open St. Andrew Sound.
Wind picked up and the seas went form 3 to 5 feet with Betty at the helm and then….
We informed Captain Bob he needs a better storage plan for his salon.
We passed the trawler “Connecting the Dots” and then were relieved for lunch.
While eating lunch we sailed past the active Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base. Security seemed pretty tight and noticed a couple Coast Guard vessels moored there. Note the submarine moored there.
Zoe” this dolphin picture is for you. We actually have seen quite a few along the way.
Coming into Fernandina Beach.
Our personalized Yeti mugs, where ice never melts.
New and old ways to determine the water depth under the hull. (Electronic depth finder verse the lead line.) Jerry’s lead line seems to be the only one that works beings Captain Bob’s depth finder is still in the box.
Liberty launch headed into Fernandina Beach. T-hank God for the “Ding-A-Ling”.
Florida’s oldest tavern “Palace Saloon” we started with whiskey sours at 1443 hours in the afternoon.
Captain Bob asked a perfect stranger if he knows how to hot wire this car. (1960 vet) The master fudge maker at “Fantastic Fudge”.
Jerry discussing the up coming trolley ride with “David Levy Yulee” (earley settler, US Senator, developer, and Rail Road builder.)
Boarded the white trolley for an Historical tour.
Got back downtown and found Captain Bob with his friends. Then ditched him and out to dinner and drinks.
