We are in F4.

Our cockpit faces "Roadie", a fly bridge version N37, owned by the sailing team of "Rockstar" a decorated C&C 38 race boat.

We know the Esmarelda story well, as you can imagine.

They WERE a zoo. Heard all of those stories.....

Very laid back and great vibe now. Bands Fri/Sat/Sun - low key and enjoyable. Bands are taking down by 8 or 9pm each night. Just right.

Here's some drone footage of the lighthouse I took last week flying from the boat (nailed the "beam in the lens" thing!)

I had a DJI Spark (used with all the other boat tracking videos) - I just upgraded to a Mavic Air 2. The difference is AMAZING. Software is a great thing......

Here's a sunrise panorama of Conch Island and the inlet - all composed and stitched together automatically by the drone gimbal. Really impressive capabilities.

We're going to go up to Cumberland Island tomorrow. I may take the drone and get some video up there as the weather is supposed to be spectacular for the next three days!

Can't launch from the park as all national parks do not allow drones except with special permission.

Off the boat along the creek will be good though!

Cool!! Looking forward to that weather here, too!

Can't wait to see your video!
