Cumberland Island South Carolina to Fernandina Beach Florida
Left Cumberland Island at 0700 hrs on Friday 11 December on a blustery cold rainy morning and motored with the current to Fernandina Beach. Our sailing friends Eileen and Larry from Wayard Wind braved the weather to help us dock at 0845 in the morning at their Oyster Bay Yacht Club pontoons and drove us to their lovely house on the water surrounded by beautiful old Live Oaks. Spent a great time with them reminiscing over past adventures, being shown around the neighbourhood, having daily hot showers (what a luxury), joining in their social events and stocking up for the Bahamas. The climate here in northern Florida seems to have big swings - Friday and Saturday cold and wet requiring many layers of clothing, Sunday and Monday warm and dry so we would have been happy in shorts and T-shirts.
