On the Ocean Again

Sunset on the ocean; a red rubber ball. We had a good trip north from GA to NC a fast sail until the middle of the night and then the wind died so we had to motor the rest of the way.

Edie and I enjoyed the ride on the ocean. (Edie’s really saying “HELP!!! I’m being held captive on a sailboat… call the police!!!”

We passed this cruise ship on the ICW in Georgia. We had just gone through a section that needs dredging and at low tide there was only about 5 1/2 to 6 feet of water. I wonder if they will make it?

Rich finally put a hole in the coconut so I could use the coconut water.

First I drained the coconut water into a cup,

Then I put the lime in the coconut and drank it all up!!

With a little bit of sugar, it sure tasted good, who knew that the song was true!

Cheap fuel?????

Fernandina Beach Marina

We were going to buy some fuel at Fernandina Beach Marina but their price of $4.60+ was a bit to steep. So Anna found fuel in Brunswick Ga. for $3.54/gal. It was worth going the 3 extra miles up to the city for a savings of over one dollar/gal. I guess that this is why there is such a big Shrimper fleet on the river at Brunswick GA.

Old “Stinky”. Fernandina Beach has two large paper plants. You can see the huge pile of ground up trees in the picture that they make paper out of.

In his dreams…. This ship was loading giant rolls of paper. You can see them on the truck at the bottom right of the screen.

Exactly where is Monrovia? They had four cranes working to load the ship, it was interesting to watch as we went by.
