We took really long showers this morning. The longest we are likely to have for awhile as we tossed off the dock lines today. Everything was stowed. MUST projects are complete so it is time to go. Woo hoo! At 11:12am we slipped the dock lines. Our wonderful dock neighbors walked s/v Honey Ryder back out of the slip, wishing us fair winds. We will miss them but we are so excited to actually start cruising. A quick stop at the fuel dock to get some additional fuel on tank #1 and a proper good bye to dock mistress Sherry and Then we were off down the East Brunswick River. We took the advice of our friend and long time Pacific cruiser Roxanna. Last winter over dinner in KC, she strongly suggested that whenever we officially cast off, "Just go around the corner and anchor. You don't have to go far. Just get off the dock, go a small distance, anchor and simply clear your head of the "dock fog." So that is what we are doing. We just dropped the anchor in the Frederica River off Fort Frederica on St Simon Island. Yes...not far from Brunswick Landing Marina but worlds away from slip living. Thanks to everyone for following along and hanging in there through all the project posting. It's hard to put on words what this feels like. It's been so long planning and working towards this. We both had HUGE smiles most of the day to give you an idea of some of our feeling. Anyway....stay tuned!
