We had a great visit and lunch with Capt Charlie, but unfortunately didn't get to see Cheryl (his much better half) on this trip. But we made plans to catch up again in November. We left Fernandina and headed to Brunswick, GA. The best fuel prices on the east coast have got to be in Brunswick at Ocean Petroleum. We took on 347 gallons and saved over a dollar a gallon.
After leaving Brunswick we went to a favorite anchorage in the Duplin River. The next day we went to a "new to us" anchorage in Buckhead Creek. From there we went on to Isle of Hope Marina in Savannah. We plan on staying here for a month or two to complete some more refurbishing inside the boat and to have the transom painted. We will finish the rest of the headliner in the boat and finish upgrading the lighting inside.
Paula took several pictures of this sail boat because it is actually sailing!! We never see a sail boat with it's sails up when we are traveling.
This video is of a Barn Swallow. He came to visit when we were anchored in the Duplin River. He kept coming back and landing with us standing about 5 ft away. He would sing and sing what a hoot!!
We met this cruise ship (he only travels on the ICW) and of course we met him at one of the narrowest and shallowest areas on the ICW. We had to pull off into a little wide place and wait for him to pass.
And of course we did manage to spot an eagle or two!
