its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

April 7 – Fernandina Beach, FL

Fernandina Harbor Marina Mooring Field

"Watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." – Roald Dahl

We spent the day playing in Fernandina Beach. It's one of our all time favorite places to visit. It's full historic buildings, beautiful old oak trees draped in Spanish moss, cute bouquets, a great beach, fun places to eat and fresh seafood, but the thing I like the best are the people who live here. They have that southern charm and graciousness that you only find in the south. I really enjoy that.

We enjoyed a relaxing morning watching the boats leaving the harbor. It's a busy time of year as everyone is moving north. We waved good-bye to Swede Dreams...hopefully we'll see them again a little further north. We took the dinghy ashore and spent the day wandering through little shops, visiting with people and walking the beach. While beach combing we found four shark’s teeth. I found three tiny ones and Stan found one very nice sized one...his first every. Unfortunately I had mine in the pocket of my blouse and they must have fallen out when I tried on clothes in one of the bouquets. So we only made it home with one.

It was a beautiful day and a great way to spend our last day in Florida...on to Georgia tomorrow.

Magnus and Charlotte on their way north.
By the time we took the dinghy ashore most of the boats had left...by evening it was full again. The migration north was begun.
