Our last post was the written story – now here it is in video. We have heard that some like the videos – ad they are a lot of fun to make (and easy) but harder to get uploaded. We hope you enjoy them!   First up – sunrise in Beaufort SC! Little Cumberland is just south of Jekyll Island and just north of Cumberland Island where the old Carnegie place is. This video was from last year just to show you what Cumberland itself looks like! We spent New Years 2016 in Fernandina on Amelia Island so we could ww the dropping of the lighted shrimp!

We know we are getting into warm […]

We are moving again. After a hectic last week of preparation, and visits, and goodbyes, we rented a car for a day to join the chaos in the big cities.

He did a great job repairing the torn panel, shortening the sail by removing 18″ from just under the head, then replacing the sacrificial sunbrella on the leach with our last canvas upgrade! Hopefully next time I will see the stupid marker before I hit it. (See last post for more on that sorry subject) We chose a sunflower yellow color for the sail to make it stand out from the blue and we think it looks great! Especially when seen from the stern with the yellow wind scoop, and the yellow spot on the […]
