St. Augustine By Sailboat And By The Stars

Approaching Bridge Of Lions-e

Bridge Of Lions St Augustine Florida-e

I'm sitting on the dock at the Amelia Island Marina. What a bunch of absolutely great folks. I topped off with fuel and went in hoping the store would have some bread and milk. Nope. Most marinas don't. I then asked if I could pay to run to the store for a few things. No way, they said don't worry, just give us permission to move the boat if needed and pointed me in the right direction. Then I got back and asked about low tide so that I could plan a good crossing at the St. Mary's Inlet. I told them I was just going to go out in the water and drop a hook and wait for a couple of hours. They said just leave the boat where it was at and wait it out. Then I was given the internet address to use. I bought the guy lunch (tip money) and was glad to do it. So if your in Amelia Island do stop in. The marina has a great gift shop, a very nice restaurant and all the facilities you need even pump out thats free. Pay it forward folks cause most marinas are out for one thing only your dollars, period.

Had a crazy wild morning leaving St. Augustine yesterday morning. I even did a soft grounding in the dark as I was pulling out. Got lucky and was able to back off the shoal. Then in pitch black dark all the way to The Bridge of Lions. I don't recommend night time movement of any sailboat in the ICW. To much to go bad. Like hitting an unlighted marker. Or one of my worst fears is getting caught up in a damn crab trap line. You day become miserable at that point if the water is cold. Just saying.
But I did make 46 miles yesterday and pulled in early at Fort George Island in a nice secluded little anchorage just north of the St. Johns River. Was a great spot.
Today I just want to get past Kings Bay and the cops with the tide at my back and I will be way happy. I have one more good sailing day tomorrow with a SW wind that should put me at the end of or past Cumberland Island. It's a downhill ride from here folks. :)
In two hours I will be in Georgia. Yaaaaaaaa !!!!!!

Cheers !!!!
