22 November 2020 | Brunswick Landing, GA
Well after five days and four nights, we are back on land. We had hopes of getting to Fernandina Beach, but were easily persuaded by two other Caliber 47 owners to join them at Brunswick Landing in Georgia. We would have gotten to Fernandina today by lunch if we had not slowed down to make a morning entrance into Saint Simons Sound.
This entrance has the infamous car carrier that went aground and as of today they are working to take it apart in sections for removal. I can only imagine the amount of money that has been spent guarding this vessel around the clock. There are three to four pilot boats that hover around it to so that no one enters their safety zone.
We had two great nights at sea and two not perfect but okay nights. The not perfect okay nights were basically tougher as the wind and the waves had us in a little bit of a washing machine tumble cycle. It was a little rolly and difficult to get much rest. But.....we would not trade the experience as we now know we can hop out and get to Florida just as easy as we can get home from the Bahamas. We always like that quick trip home. The one getting to Florida we usually enjoy taking our time but this year with a late departure we were anxious to get to warmer climates. I say that, but if you looked at all the warm clothes we packed you would think we were going to be cold for a month or two. Greg has been wearing shorts the last three days during the day so it has been beautiful since we got below about Hatteras.
The dolphin were out in usual fashion playing with us along the way. The sea traffic was not as fierce at night as I remember from prior trips. The most traffic I saw was six cargo ships parked at the mouth of the Savannah River. We saw a handful of sailboats but none other than Bright Ayes that we recognized.
We are here with Bright Ayes and Carlina, both 47 footers that Greg and I stay in touch with and travel with when we can.
The happiest camper is Jaxon. He loves the boat when it is not moving but other than that he prefer the land. He has been a trooper though and is taking his meds better this year.
We will hang here a day or two before heading further south. We are now at least on relaxation mode.
