Some more pictures from the last few days.

I was unaware that Georgia beaches are still segregated. Well at least as far as the birds are concerned.

Went by Saint Simons Sound and saw this rather odd site. Would certainly look more professional with the Atlantic Salvor in the foreground with Sailor of Fortune at the helm.

No pic for this one. Pretty snotty today coming down behind Cumberland Island. Get near kings Bay Naval base. Post security calls. "We have an open gate with a sub at the entrance and 3 security vessels including the Retriever at the ready. Normally you need to keep a 500 yard distance. Because the waterway comes within the security zone, you may enter the zone provided you don't deviate from the AICW". I would guess around 300 yards from what looks like a Virginia class submarine. Pretty F-ing cool! Thought about opening the pilothouse door and trying to take a picture and decided it wasn't worth the possible attention.

Don’t most modern marine SSB radios also receive AM radio frequencies? My fixed base one did. I do realize that most coastal cruisers don’t have SSB either.

Ted, Ohio Class in Kings Bay. Next time take all the photos you want, everyone around here does.

How was the ride out to the ICW marker at the mouth of St Andrew Sound?

Nope, not Ohio class, no wing (or whatever it's called) on the conning tower.

Actually, there is a channel, but it's blocked from the satellites because of proximity to the sub base.

Fairwater planes, which I've just now learned have the advantage of allowing the depth of the ship to be controlled without inducing the same pitch that a bow plane would. Makes sense.

Interesting. There are non listed as stationed in Kings Bay. Most up in New London (Groton), with a few here and there like Hawaii.

Too be honest, I don't know that it was a Virginia class sub. It was absent the Fairwater plane and appeared smaller than the Ohio class. It was tied up right at the front of the base which seems odd as their usually well inside or out in the Degaussing station. Maybe an unintended stop.

I think we will try the rim route this year. The high water will help.

Seen nothing less than 12 feet all the way on Route 1.

BTW, the lock at Clewiston/Roland Martin is operating.

Well either a different sub or I need to make an appointment with the optometrist.

Wrong tide state for the short cut? You definitely need a high tide.
