Day 1 on the ICW, and now a pause...

06 October 2017
After celebrating our arrival at Mile 0 with a great dinner (and beer) and a REALLY sound nights sleep we got underway Wednesday to move the boat 12 miles down the ICW to where Perspective will be stored for the next six weeks while we finnish up things at work. It is a busy section of the waterway with many lift bridges and barge traffic. (The folks in the tugs that push these barges are amazing watercraft operators.) The most interesting part is the lock at Great Bridge (the site of a famous Revolutionary War Battle) where we enter the lock, tie up as the gates close, and the water is raised. Then we motor out the South Gate as the Great Bridge Drawbridge then opens up on the other side. Ann totally charmed the old lock operator that brought us through. We are now docked at the Atlantic Yacht Basin in a protected lagoon off the ICW. It took us the better part of a day to clean and secure (take sails off etc) Perspective while we leave her for six weeks. Rented a car and drove home. For the record it is a lot more enjoyable navigating the East River through New York City then going through by car in the expressway!! We can't wait to return and continue our trip south.
