We are done... almost

We are in Amelia Island Yacht Basin, just 12 miles from where the boat will be hauled.  There are no services at that boat yard so we are staying here and enjoying the surroundings.

We left New Smyrna on August 8 after hitting the farmers market near the dock in the morning.  Pam loaded us up with fresh fruit and vegetables.  We found a bakery there too so we are eating well!

Got a newspaper?

Did 10 bridges on the ICW and stopped in the planned community of Palm Coast.  Huge apartment complexes and neighbourhoods on the canals.  I wonder what the prices are like given all the commotion about Florida real estate.

All along the ICW - thousands of boat lifts.

We stayed at Saint Augustine over Sunday night.  Nice marina - the place was all abuzz 'cause Tiger was there 5 days before staying on his 152 foot yacht while he played in some golf tournie.  Too bad we missed him.  Swam in the pool and generally tried to stay cool.

From Saint Augustine we sailed here - to Amelia Island where we will spend the week on maintenance items and getting the boat ready to put to bed until January.
