Charleston Marine Center is the best, and if you get Jeff to help you'll be happy cruisers!

Carol and Heather toured the town while Jack and Ken did check list stuff. They were very interested in tagging along when it came to dinner - dessert first at Kaminski's then Sushi at the little Japanese restaurant, Shi Ki, on the way back to the boat (same strip-mall as East Bay Deli). Ken bought Heather another butterfly box in the market, this one will be mounted in such a way that it will have to be sold with the boat!

We introduced C&J to Cumberland Island (federal park once owned by T. Carnegie's wife) and hiked the dogs around the grounds to reintroduce them to trees.

Motored-sailed from there to Fernandina, while Tribute sailed to Melbourne. Fernandina is what we think of as 1930's FL, quaint brick two-story 1800's structures, some painted lovely colors, and lots of seafood, alcohol and chatty boaters. I have to recommend their laundry set-up (now, how often do you hear that!) dig this, commercial W/D (2 ea)!!!!! We were in cruiser heaven.

St. Augustine is up ahead. Can't wait cause we both need a haircut - Heather thinks she looks like Lon Chaney in Wolf Man hair, and Ken looks like Cary Grant in need of a trim.
