Georgia, Sweet Georgia

Into Georgia, just, had a few mechanical issues today, batteries, generator, invertor but all solved by suppertime.

Highlight of the day, took on 440 gallons of diesel so hammered a credit card for $1500.

Anchored overnight in Shellbine Creek, southern Georgia after an early start (7:00am) to make the tide, much grumbling from the first mate.

Only a few piccies.

The first one is “What is it?”


Then some maritime commerce.

Finally a sunset in the Georgia Swamps.

More tomorrow.

  1. Ja, great pics, I’m enjoying your trip.

    I’ve no idea what your ‘long pier’ is, best guess a wharf of some kind for offloading those huge barges that I see on the tele, possibly fruit or coal!

    Or construction work on an unfinished bridge ’cause they ran out of money 😉

  2. Even though I dislike the sea with a passion, I am very envious. Love the sunset shot.

  3. Well, the first one is interesting, It’s a submarine “Degaussing Station” they back the Boomer into the dock and energize those big coils to remove any magnetism the ship has picked up, we saw a big sub coming out of the facility but I was too afraid to take a photo with all the heavily armed patrol boats shooing me off into the shallows.

  4. Ja well, if you had taken the picture from the front so that we could see that it was hollow that might of helped, a bit like this! 😉

    Are you going past Norfolk?

    I have Tom Clancy to thank for my vast knowledge of Boomers. 🙂

  6. Soutie: The photo was taken from the nearest approach I could make, TWO 18ft patrol boats mounting 50 calibre machine guns fore and aft made it clear I was as near as was prudent.

    Toc: Me too.

  7. Soutie: Mile zero of the ICW is at Norfolk, we will pass into the Chesapeake at that point, it may take some time, we are at mile 519 tonight (Thursday March 17)

  8. LW,

    Mrs Toc’s knowledge is even better than mine. 🙂 Fantastic pic’s as ever. Keep them coming.
