Purple Starfish on Marineland Beach

My hope is that we don’t lose you this week, things are settling into a nice little groove, including the afternoon thunder storm…every day. With all this monotony, we hope you stick with us and continue to enjoy our adventure, because there is still a trail to blaze.

We started this week with a visit to Hammock Community Church, where Rev. Dr. Doran McCarty, gave us a great reminder of what happens when we think ourselves too important. Needless to say, living in a small space without humility isn’t easy, thanks for putting up with me, honey. I love you!

We have been getting out in the early morning to walk or ride on the beach. Amazingly, no alarm clocks were snoozed even once in the process, I swear!

The sandbar at the Matanzas inlet lured us back for a couple of hours of floating in the cool water.

We are loving the hard sand here and rode our bikes a few miles south to Washington Oaks Gardens State Park. Rock climbing never gets old, even the short stacks, and Nyah loves being Queen of the mountain.

We rounded out our week with a great visit with Lew and Lavern. Lunch at our new fav BBQ place, and a failed attempt to visit Fort Matanzas due to a looming thunder storm, gave us lots of time to catch up.

A little dinner from under the boat never hurt the budget, I’m sure we are going to like this part of the adventure.

We ended our week by squeezing in one more sandbar visit with our marina neighbors, Barbara and Emilio who sail Kurkuntela, from Saint Simons Island, GA.

Thanks for sticking with us, come and visit while we are still close…we’ll try to coordinate appropriately for one of these not to happen.

  1. Fair winds and calm seas! We are also living aboard our boat, Miss Lone Star. We set off in 10 days from Galveston, TX bound for Key Largo. We are taking the kids and dog along for the fun of it! In December we will be headed to the Caribbean for a few years. We’d love it if you checked out our family travel blog!
