Riding the Waves on Seahorse

Finally Home

2:09am - Cynthia hears beep beep beep beep - silence - beep beep beep beep - silence. What was that beeping and where was it coming from? we are tied up in a slip. Tom gets up and discovers the carbon monoxide detector is the culprit. He attempts to turn...

Last night on the boat

Up at 5:45 and Cynthia cooked bacon and eggs. Ed made the coffee an toasted the English muffins. We pulled away from the dock at 7:00 on our way to Melbourne.

Overcast and windy, in fact so overcast we could barely see the large buildings at...

Two more days??

We were prepared to leave at 6:30am and a Ed decided to get fuel since it was right at the dock. However they didn't open till 7:30 so we didn't take off until 8:15. When they first started pumping it was going about a gal.every 2 minutes. Tom said...

Finally Florida

Last night we had decided to stay at Jekyll on Monday due to the weather forecast. We talked about having bacon and eggs for breakfast since we didn't have to rush or get going. However as we were eating our muffins from yesterday and were looking at the...

Low country

Rained early this morning and was overcast when we left at 7:45am. Cynthia made Krusteaz cinnamon muffins for breakfast. As we traveled the sun came out and we were able to open the center window. We continue to see dolphins along the way.

The long and winding road (aka ICW)

A peaceful night at anchor, although Ed was slightly uneasy, this being the first time anchoring Seahorse. As it turned out, the anchor held and we were in the same place we were when we dropped the hook - success!

Pulled anchor at 7:00 and...

Deep and Wide

Up at 6 off the dock at 7:00 - no issues with the engines. Slow go in the beginning- again lots of docks and large homes with massive retaining walls (see pics). It warmed up quickly and it clouded up quickly. We weren’t sure whether or not to wear our...

Speed up, Slow down, speed up, slow down

Up at 6:00 and left the dock at 7:40 headed to Myrtle Beach. It was 44 degrees when we woke up but quickly warmed up and we were able
to shed our jackets and put on short sleeve shirts (maybe later even shorts).

On this leg of the our...
