Our run from Brunswick to Fernandina Beach was a good one. We timed the tides for the trip about optimal. We stayed on a mooring in Fernandina Beach and the weather was awesome. Tuesday morning we were up and underway by 7:30 am. Our goal was to anchor north of St. Augustine Tuesday night and then move down to St. Augustine on Wednesday morning. We ran the section between the Fernandina Beach and the St. Johns River (Jacksonville) at a leisurely/cautious pace due to shoaling in the ICW.
The anchorage on the Tolomato River we had picked was crowded so we moved down river to another anchorage picked as our bailout point. When we arrived we poked our way back into the anchorage and set the hook for the evening. We enjoyed an awesome sun set and Ginny cooked a great meal. Just after sunset and with enough light to still see, a waterman on a small boat passed by and said “it doesn’t get any better than this”. I was thinking the same thing and felt very lucky to experience nature at her finest.
