  SOUTH CAROLINA
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
After 3 1/2 months we are travelling through our last State in America as we work our way south...






We are in Fernandina Florida after travelling overnight from Savannah Georgia.  A beautiful sail with a beam breeze and a starlit sky!  It is truly amazing how many stars you can see when you free yourself from all the light pollution of the city.




Before we left Charleston we met a wonderful young couple waiting patiently for their first child to arrive.  What we loved about Derrick and Casey, was their passion for the sea.  their dream will be to one day travel as Shelley and I are, only they want to bring their child(ren)...  We hope their dreams come true!

Today we made like tourists again.  We explored the Historic District of Fernandina where we found  a town rich in beauty and charm...  When you visit Florida, as soon as you cross the state line, you really need to check this place out..
Spanish Moss...  The natives used to make clothing out of it... ITCHY!


David Levey - First Senator from Florida...  He is really not very chatty....

The local museum made in a local jail....



The county courthouse... Big sign - NO GUNS ALLOWED!  Really?

Postcards to Mackenzie!

Florida's OLDEST Bar...  A must see....

Our mini van...

When at anchor... we haul water....

GREAT SHRIMP!  $7.99 per pound...  Try that at home....

Our plan is to leave early in the morning and make it to St. Augustine by late tomorrow evening...

BTW, this was our view tonight.... We may never come home....



Cheers!
