Day 25 - St. Simon's GA to Amelia Island Yacht Basin FL

Day 25-Oct 28

Checked out the town of St Simon's last evening and dined at the Georgia Sea Grill. Easy Uber, to and from. 

We have planned only a short run and given tidal issues, we did not have to leave before mid-day. Shoved off a little after 1200 and headed across St. Simon's Sound to the ICW adjacent to Jekyll Island. Here we saw the first pink flamingos of the trip. 

After that we had to cross St. Andrew's Sound. This one was exciting as parts were only 5 feet deep and just a little wind created some nice chop just as Amanda was making lunch for us. 
Then we traveled along the ICW adjacent to Cumberland Island, the last spot along the Georgia coast. 

By the way, we are in the area during a huge collegiate game tomorrow, Georgia vs Florida. Lots of people in town wearing  team jerseys for this one.

We enjoyed navigating down the Cumberland River at a leisurely pace and crossed the border into Florida and found refuge in a marina still standing, the Amelia Island Yacht Basin for the evening.
