Alexis volunteered to create a breakfast for us from some of our leftover rib eye from last night’s scrumptious dinner. A masterpiece to start the day off. Thanks!!
When time to cast off we had to wait for a passing small cruise ship being tugged up the river. It turned out to be the one we had previously seen in dry dock.
As we snacked our way back out the St. James River to the ICW, we spied a bald eagle setting atop a piling. Way cool!!
Our view of Fernandina Beach, the last port in Florida, showed a colorful and inviting little village that we hope to stop and visit next go-round.
Solar powered lighthouse anyone? This we found in the St. Mary’s Channel.
At the nearby King’s Bay Submarine Base (home to Trident-class Subs) we watched two patrol boats securing the area and guarding the submarine docked there. Now this was an awesome thing to see! These are the Big Guy Toys!
Our home for the night was Jekyll Harbor Marina where we found the local SeaJay’s Restaurant perched right on the banks of the ICW. We all had the special “Low Country Boil” with a mixture of fresh costal shrimp, smoked sausage, corn on the cob and potatoes. Now this was real “local food” and enjoyed by all of us.
