Exactly 2 weeks after arriving in Florida I sailed (and motored) across the border into Georgia. Did I plan to be in Georgia? Well, no. But, storms and boat stuff change my plans just about every day… that’s all part of sailing. It’s great to have a plan but it’s vital to be ready to improvise!
Now, I am tucked into a great little marina in Brunswick, Georgia where I just enjoyed my first cruisers happy hour gathering at the marina lounge. Yes! And… to cruisers’ happy hours! OMG this marina has free beer on tap. Is it PBR? Yup. Is it free? Enjoy it. Met a great group of cruisers, most of whom have just made there way back here from a season in the Bahamas and many that have recently sold there houses and are just starting their new lives afloat. I plan to interview some of them soon and introduce you to them and their stories.
I’ll be here for a couple weeks to make some repairs and improvements to the boat and get ready for more visitors or a solo trip north. Will I make it to NY this summer? At this point I’d be pretty psyched to get to the Chesapeake Bay! Wherever I am it will be an adventure and I plan to always stay open to the possibilities each day presents.
