Wednesday on the water

We left the St. Augustine Municipal Marina at 7:30 AM- the first opening of the Bridge of Lions. During our departure, we had one more really great look at El Galeon.
This replica of a Spanish galleon is visiting several Florida seaports in honor of the 500th anniversary of the naming of Florida by Ponce de Leon. We would have loved to have taken the tour, but those did not start until Thursday. And, we needed to get moving up the coast.

Today is going to be a long day. Terry has planned ten hours on the water. So far, it's been another beautiful day. Right after lunch, the real fun started. First, we had a tremendous dolphin show. They were all around us.

Then, the fish line sounded. We caught a tuna. That would be really fresh fish for dinner tonight!

Now, we are headed in to Jeckyll Island. Terry called TowBoat to ask about the missing marks. The answer was- yeah, they move around some. We don't recommend coming in from the ocean. But, it's high tide so you should be alright.

Terry thanked him, and he said he would be waiting to hear from us. Hmmm...... But, we have a chart plotter, maps, and three good navigators. Hopefully, the TowBoat guy will not hear from us today.
