Heading North to Cumberland Island

We made a crazy decision, last minute, after Daubie left The boat, to head North, yes North! You might wonder, why is that so crazy? Well, the reason is, most all the cruisers around these parts are sun chasers heading to the warm waters of the Bahamas and Carribean Islands. We, on the other hand, took a 180 degree turn and crossed back into Georgia from Fernindina, FL, where we had spent the last 3 days.

It was only a few miles away and after reading a little bit about Cumberland Island, we decided that we couldn't miss the opportunity to check it out. An island with Carnagie mansions, white sand beaches, wild horses and 50+ miles of trails, who wouldn't want to stop and check it out! We spent two nights there and met two fellow cruisers, where we were given the opportunity to check out their boats, the Tartan 30 and 37. When you spend long days on your boat, it's always exciting when you get the chance to check out someone else's "home"!

Cumberland Island was an amazing stop and I'd recommend camping there if you are ever in southern Georgia. Check out the link: http://www.nps.gov/cuis/index.htm
