It's a Miracle!!!

We left Brunswick, Ga. on Tuesday morning and headed outside for Fernandina Beach under full sail. I went down to the cabin for a few minutes to change clothes and when I returned to the cockpit we were in a squall with 25/30 knot winds. Carol's comment was exactly on point: Do you think that we may have too much sail up? It was a rough ride for a while.

We made it safely to Fernandina Beach which is just barely in Florida, but is there none the less. That night was probably the warmest night of the trip so far. Tonight, in Jacksonville Beach, was even better; it was so nice that we ate at the cockpit table and then had to go inside because the gnats were getting bad. It's a miracle!!! Warm at last, even if just for the night.

Tomorrow, Thursday 12/11/08, it's on to St. Augustine for a couple of days to sight-see and get some replacement boat stuff, e.g. oil filters, that we have used so far. When we leave St. Augustine we'll push south to Sebastian, Fl. to see cousin Les and Jean.
