Travel Days 45-48 St. Augustine to Crescent River 3/24-29/23
The winds have been playing havoc with our anchorage plans. It is so much easier to anchor if you don't have to take the dog to the beach. There are so many more places to anchor. We were originally going to anchor at MM769 but decided to go to Windward Camachee Cove. We have stayed here in the past and they were able to put us on the gas dock. We added another whiskey glass to our collection. We were hoping to use the courtesy car to get some last minute groceries but there was an issue with it so we took an Uber. Unfortunately, we went at a bad time. It took 55 minutes to get an Uber to take us back. It was a quiet night at the marina as the winds died down.
Again the winds were against us for a good anchorage so we stayed one night at Oasis at Fernandina. We met the harbor host, who graciously offered to take us to groceries or anything else we needed. We also met other loopers Steve and Dottie on Chipmunk and saw Dorothy and Terry on Magic, and Capel and Karen on Arrabella. We also met Jody and Tricia on Last Chance. It was another quiet night after giving several boat tours.
We were headed for an anchorage again but the weather reports were calling for severe thunderstorms and wind for the next few days so we got in to Brunswick Landing Marina along with several other loopers who had the same idea. We met Bob and Asea on Imzadi-2 on our dock. At Brunswick Landing there is happy hour every M. w, and F with free wine and beer. We had a nice time chatting there. The marina also has a huge dog park and free laundry. The yacht club was so nice with lots of grouping of chairs and tables, a library and several iPads to use.

Right next to the yacht club is the fire pit.

We left early to get to our anchorage. Yeah we can finally anchor out. Crescent River was a great anchorage on the way south so we decided to go there again. It was peaceful and several other boats joined us. The beach is perfect to take Izzy since it is sandy. She enjoys smelling where the raccoons walk.
On the beach is this National Ocean Survey Bench Mark. 🤔
