Once again - I am soooo far behind in the writing.
We are on the dock in Fernandina Beach - washing, cleaning, applying cetol, sorting, and doing all the other things that must be done before we haul out next Thursday at Tiger Point Marina.
We had a pile of fun in St. Augustine, gadding about with Zingara Bruce and a good run up here on Sunday. The weather is hot with a touch of a breeze at night - vastly different from when we were here in Jan!
We're off to Charlotte SC by car for a weekend visit with Sue and Terry, then back here and into the last mad rush.
More interesting stuff soon - relatively speaking!

We made it to St Augustine! A total of 30 hours (from Vero Beach down to Ft Pierce in the ICW and back up the coast), 6 of them under sail alone, and the rest motor sailing with varying levels of the "motor" part. 168.4 nautical miles.
As I seem to be saying more and more often, I'll write details later. We had a good trip, in company with Bruce on Zingara, got in here about 1:30 on Friday, and are anchored on the north side of the Bridge of Lions. We'll explore around here for a day and probably leave on Sunday to go up to Fernandina Beach.

It's early morning, and we are heading out of Vero Beach. The birds are chirping and dolphins fishing and all is well.
We had a fabulous last meal at the Dockside Grill last evening (thanks Pat and Wayne for introducing us to it) Have I mentioned before how much I love to dinghy to dinner, dine well, then get back in my little boat to come home to the big boat? There is still something so exotic about it.
I added details to the Stomping Grounds post and the Whooda Thunkit Post and stuck in another one on Guana Cay so there's more reading material there if you're interested! See you soon!!
