It’s wrapping up soon
Well we left St. Augustine a few days ago. We sailed and did some motor-sailing on our way up the ICW. The closer we get to Jacksonville I began to lose my motivation. Last night was our last night anchored out on Beauty till December. I know I shouldn’t be sad but I am. She has become part of my inner soul. I am going to be missing her terribly. With that said, we will be looking forward our new adventures in December 2018. We will be making a trip or two down to Florida to check on her this summer.
Over this next week we are staying in a marina close to Green Cove Springs to dismount the sails. All electric and nothing of any value will stay on her during storage. I will keep you all updated this week.
As we sailed up the ICW towards Jacksonville we said our goodbyes to St. Augustine till next December. These are a few boats on mooring balls.
Winds were awesome so we put up our head sail.
A dry dock for the Military vessels where the intra-coastal meets the St Johns Inlet.
Looks like a mega-yacht is being worked on.
A few other ships near by.
What a pretty tug. Its the Gregg McAllister.
Spring has arrived in Jacksonville…Time for re-shingling. We have been there; done that..don’t want to do it again…LOL
The winds have been perfect to sail the ICW.. We reached 7.5 knots Awesome!!!
I had to laugh I have never seen boats on a freighter not sure if they are imports or exports.
Up close and personal; I can’t make out the brand (make).
This dry dock has a freighter getting repaired.
Our last night anchored out on Beauty near Exchange Island. About 8 miles from Ortega river. Last anchor till December. What a great night it was. We had rain falling all night; washing the salt water off her before we hit fresh water where she’ll get a good cleaning.
As always thanks for following us!
