Happy turkey

10.7

We got off late this morning because we had some errands to run. Brad ended up loosing a three way rock, paper, scissors match and had to take our used oil to a marina about a mile away. Always the charmer, he finagled a ride out of another sailor back from the marina. Along the way he was given a tour of the three master that his chauffer was the captain of. The current was the story of the day. We kept switching from roaring current with us to roaring current against as we past by inlets. As we were in the ICW our speed was recorded in mph instead of knots and we managed to reach 10.7 mph, smoking! We entered Florida today and it is still freezing. We anchored off Fernandina Beach at mile 717 of the ICW, in our last state.

Where is Hal

Hal left today. Around 4 Hal’s sister Kippy came with her baby. She was kind enough to bring beer and wine for us. It still doesn’t make up for her stealing Hal from us, but it eased the pain. We spent most of the night doing laundry and escaping the cold in the marina lounge watching TV. The high was 43, mind you it’s Georgia. It should be warmer here.
