December 10, 2013  Day 26 South for the Winter
At anchor
St. Simons, Georgia

No fog this morning! We departed our anchorage at 0800 under a cloudy sky and headed south. Our cloudy day became a rainy day and then a sunny day and then the cycle repeated itself.

The ICW is frequently narrow in this area and continues to be surrounded by marshland.  It also winds around a great deal which required monitoring the auto pilot constantly.  We provided a good air draft for seagulls that followed us for quite a while.  We also spotted several dolphins that played near the boat.

We arrived at our anchorage just north of the bridge at St. Simons at 3:30. We enjoyed appetizers and then had dinner. We watched television and read for the remainder of the evening. 

We are not sure where we are going tomorrow – perhaps Jekyll Island or Cumberland Island.  We will make that decision in the morning.
