Georgia On My Mind

Georgia, from the wilds of Cumberland Island near the Florida border to the bustling port city of Savannah, provides a wonderful experience for the cruiser traveling the ICW. With the 8 foot tides creating vast mud banks and miles of open marshland wildlife abounds. The ICW meanders it’s way behind the Golden Isles that form the Atlantic Coast of Georgia alternating between wide open Sounds and narrow shallow cuts that were dug back in the 1930’s and now make it possible to enjoy watching the many waterfowl, including the rare white pelicans, dolphins swimming along or under our bow and the occasional alligator sunning on the nearby bank. Tonight we are anchored in the Wright River planning on visiting Savannah tomorrow. This is another awesome, quiet, solitary anchorage along the salt marshes with a beautiful full moon and clear skies.
