December 15, 2014  Day 24 South for Winter
Sisters Creek Free Dock
Jacksonville, FL

Another great cruising day – sunny, calm, warm, no boat wakes, dolphins, pelicans, and a fairly short day! It is a pattern we could get used to!  We left our anchorage at Cumberland Island and in 45 minutes we were officially in Florida waters!  We passed by Fernandina Beach and paid careful attention to the water depth. We waited for the tide to be high enough but still had to be extra careful in certain areas due to shoaling.

We arrived at Sisters Creek, near Jacksonville, about 2:00. Tom and Melesia had arrived earlier on Journey and were there to catch our lines. We had a fun evening and shared a chicken parmesan dinner on our boat.  We invited Tim to join us. He was also docked here on his sailboat and we enjoyed getting to know him.

We will depart in the morning and go to Marineland Marina near Palm Coast.  We said goodbye to Tom and Melesia until January when we will see them in Ft. Myers.
