Welcome to Sunny Florida

Fernandina Beach, Florida
30 40.19 N 081 28.00 W

We're the jinx. Just as we crossed the border from Georgia to Florida today, it started pouring. There's a strong cold front passing and it hit us just then.

Progress was very slow today. Strong wind and strong currents were both against us. For 6 hours passing Cumberland Island we averaged only 2 knots. It was my original plan to stay for a day on northern Cumberland. It's one of our favorite places. However, because of the cold front, it was not a nice day to go hiking in the woods. Oh well, another time.

We're splurging tonight by staying at the marina. We can do showers and laundry and buy groceries before departing. It was a price shock though. When we were here a couple of years ago, the price was $1.25 per foot. Now it went up to $1.85 per foot. Ouch, that's almost the highest we've ever paid.
