Welcome to Florida

14 February 2009 | Ft. George, Fl
2-14-09 N 30 26.403 W81 26.144
We had a good night at Moon River, and then caught the Hell's Gate at high tide which is always good. So far pretty good. There are very few people out here; we have seen maybe four boats in two days.
So much for anticipation, we finally went aground today!!!!! It was a soft grounding, actually only one hull was stuck, the depth meter said 18 ft... So much for being 21 feet wide. It only took us about five minutes to back and wiggle off and go on our way. By the way we are only using one engine as the starboard engine's alternator fell off!!!!!! The adjustment bracket broke in half which allowed it to fall over, OH WELL ! At least we have two engines and sails.
The next night we anchored up the Duplin River, (N 31 25.516 W 81 17.672), a very pretty spot and very calm and protected between Little Sapelo and Sapelo Islands.
Friday the thirteenth finds us easing ever farther south, we passed through Brunswick and past Jekyll Island to our over night at the north end of Cumberland Island, (N 30 53.956 W81 26.144), another nice spot!!!
Today Saturday, we have finally made into Florida!!!!!!!!! It has rainy all day long, so it was a long day, but we made to our usual spot, Ft. George, just a few miles north of Jacksonville. Tomorrow we will head outside and do some fishing and head for St. Augustine.
