On to Thunderbolt

Left Jekyll this morning at 7:45 heading north to Thunderbolt, Ga,..a suburb about 6 miles outside of Savannah.  The tide was dead low, and the first mile or so north of the Jekyll marina is a notorious shallow section of the ICW.  Needless to say the depth sounder got a lot of attention, but all went well.  I had a good feeling about the trip after the show I received while waiting on the sun (dolphin pic)  They feed in the shallows around the marina at low tide and, based on their intent look at me, must get a hand-out on occasion.

The rest of the trip went well, all 92 miles, and I was tied up by 5 pm.  I included a pic of Alchemy's dash while underway for those uninitiated to the world of boater electronics:  Radar on the left, Color Chart Plotter center, autopilot, depth sounder, shifters/throttles, spread about...quite handy stuff!!

Another bowl of "Dave's Soup" tonight...may be the last, even though it is very good.


  1. Just caught up with your Blog today and was surprised that Mia has "bailed"! When will you be back to River Dunes or are you heading elsewhere?
