If you click on the link below, you will see (please God) the log of our trip to Wilmington from North Myrtle Beach: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1PISK35-FdxM4ngp_wPwDZ6Pi_qNeu47o This will be a short post, because really, nothing very exciting has happened. We had an uneventful trip from Myrtle Beach to Wilmington; conditions were cool and windy, but significantly warmer … Continue reading Cape Fear River, and Wilmington, NC
I'm looking for a simple way to show our track as we proceed. In the meantime...
To those of you haranguing me for not writing recently, I am sorry. I feel as if there were not enough interesting or funny occurrences to regale you with, and then realized that maybe that means we are improving! Perhaps David and I have calmed down regarding our sailing abilities, and have progressed from screaming … Continue reading Lady’s Island to St John’s (65 miles), St John’s to Georgetown (70 miles), Georgetown to Osprey (32 miles)

Brian (my brother) left by car right after we did from Brunswick, and … Continue reading 3/14/18 Brunswick to Delegal (Savannah) to Beaufort, SC

The weather turned cold last night (probably in the lower 50’s) and we think the poor thing was hanging out in the shallows of the marina, looking for warmer waters—manatees are extremely sensitive to cold water, and often congregate around … Continue reading 3/6/18 Our new friend
We left St Augustine early in the morning of the 5th, anticipating an uneventful ride to our last stop in Florida, god willing. About an hour into our voyage, we heard a siren behind us--it was the US Coast Guard, obviously targeting Golden. We slowed, they pulled up alongside, and asked, "When was the last … Continue reading 3/5/2018 BUSTED
