After a very long day today dodging shallow spots in the Intracoastal Waterway, Paul and I find ourselves tonight in Brunswick, Georgia. We were underway today for more than 10 hours, a little longer than we planned to travel, but we are happily now at Brunswick Landing Marina, a very low cost diesel fuel provider ($2.74 per gallon), where I intend to fill up first thing in the morning. With a full load of about 1,700 gallons, I can travel about 2,700 miles before refueling. Fuel is very expensive in the Bahamas, so it is a good time to stock up.

ODK will travel with me tomorrow, either to Fernandina Beach or Jacksonville depending on how comfortable the ride is in the ocean. He will then head back to Ford Thursday morning and I will soldier on alone for a few more days.
