ST. MARY’S – GEORGIA

Here we are at the best B&B on the east coast. Gerry Jenkins-Sullivan’s, not kidding folks this time with Gerry was like being in a B&B only better. Not only did I love spending time with my Hi_school buddy but she treated us like royalty. Now know when you come to visit me I can take you to the best places to eat & drink, but do I do homey, NOT. We went all over to our favorite places, Fernandina, shopping and St. Simon’s for Sal’s pizza which was closed until 4PM and we got there at 2ish. On to our next best which was hamburgers, not too shabby. Gerry’s new house in St. Mary’s is lovely and she gave us the master suite, she doesn’t use it and company does. Go figure. We ended up anchoring in the North River because St. Mary’s River was blocked by the Coast Guard because of Irma. They had 32 boats destroyed in the river that had to be taken out. The marina was destroyed, not one we would have stayed in, it was a dump. We were able to dingy over to the boat services dock and tie up for the duration of our stay. After we left Gerry we went on to Beach Marina. A lovely little place with a good restaurant. Don and I enjoyed our cocktails with some good Mexican and then hung out in the outdoor lounge on the water listening to some good guitar music. AH, life doesn’t get much better. Today we are in St Augustine where we actually got this 48 foot trawler anchored to a mooring ball. What a frigging challenge, I was truly ready to give up but Don wanted one more try and low and behold anchor we did. Now we are spending the night watching the rainbow as the showers come down around us. Loving it. Tomorrow we’ll go into town on the dingy and visit with my dear friend Eileen. Planning n being here for a week. I need some pampering, pedicure, massage. Boating is hard work especially today with that mooring ball fiasco. Signing off with love, good night and god bless.
