"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

June 9 - Thunderbolt, GA

Day 95 - Savannah Suburb

After watching the amazing sunrise and dolphins catching their breakfast we pulled up the anchor headed towards Savannah. Most of our travel today was through low marshland, few homes or boats. The last hour or so of our trip we began to see more trees and beautiful homes. We also saw a sign that said this area was the yachting venue during the 1996 Olympics.

Savannah isn't on the ICW and there aren't a lot of marinas in the downtown area, so we are at a marina in the town of Thunderbolt. It's only five miles to the historic district from our marina and we can catch the bus a few blocks from here. There is a marina right downtown, but you can only stay there for a few days at a time and we plan to leave the boat here when we go home next week. It won't be as fun as being in the middle of things in Savannah, but this will be a good place to leave the boat when we go home for a visit.

We walked over to Tubby's for dinner. It's a local favorite known for its fresh seafood. On Thursday nights they have a sunset celebration, which includes a live band. We sat on the front porch in rocking chairs and enjoyed our dinner with a front row seat to the entertainment.

Our beautiful sunrise...I haven't seen too many of these on our trip
Isles of Hope marina...nice boats
 Looks like we are in the south...doesn't it?
