Don't know how you feel about anchoring out, but you missed a great anchorage behind Cumberland Island just north of the GA/FL border.

We normally anchor out 99% of the time. Spent six months this summer in Maine and we never went to a marina. Thanks for the tip, yes I do know of the anchorage but we were trying to get more distance. We anchored in the south anchorage behind Cumberland Island.

That's an interesting "trawler". FF's kind of boat I would think. A benchmark water temp

The Shrimper was from GA. Is that a trawler? Is the next one a trawler?

They make some bad azz trawler out of old steel hull shrimpers down here on the Ms. Coast. Great looking trip. Keep the pictures coming.

That boat has been sitting there for over twenty years.

Glad your cruise is going well. Nice to be warm, eh?

Morning at the anchorage here in Mosquito Lagoon, just north of Cape Canaveral. Nice to be surrounded by one's peeps. The water temp was 46 when I left Deltaville two weeks ago!

Pretty pictures. I'd rather be bored stiff in contitions like that instead of in a state of panic with waves breaking over the bow and stern at the same time.

I used the word "bored" for Marin, who despises slow speed boats.

I've had some people ask about this shot. I took it this morning looking down from the bow at the dolphin swimming in the bow wave. The rest of what you see ie. the clouds and the boat are reflections off the water. I did not photoshop this in anyway. I don't even know how.

Greetings,
The dolphin escort IS quite exciting and entertaining. It's amazing when you see them in the distance and the next thing you know, they're playing and frolicking in your wakes/waves.

Daddyo,

If you want to come into Fort Pierce City Marina, radio for instructions. They are dredging the entrance channel. We will be leaving for home Sunday morning.

I was showing this to the Admiral who does know how to Photoshop, to show how much fun it will be when we can finally head south in the boat. Her question... How did he take the picture without his own reflection showing in the picture? I pondered that a while. And couldn't figure an answer.

Thanks for sharing with us wannabe cruisers. It keeps the fire burning.

If you look close you can see the camera hanging out over the cap rail.
