Around the Boat Yard

At the boat yard, several rounds of Rummy were played and several movies watched between walking excursions and chatting with our neighbors.  Although Thunderbolt, GA was a pleasure to look at, the town had little to offer for antsy visitors.  We frequented Tubby’s where we enjoyed cold beers and tasty fare for reasonable prices.  IMG_6887

 

The nearby Bonaventure Cemetary proved a fantastic walking ground.  The eerie beauty of this historic cemetery has captured the creative interests of poets, authors, filmmakers, and the general public for years.  Throughout this 100 acre burial ground gardens and sculptures lie beneath a canopy of Spanish moss laden oaks.  We spent an afternoon here admiring. IMG_7010 It finally came time to say goodbye to BMac (even though I told him I was so pleased with a crew of 3 that I wouldn’t allow him to leave).  He hopped a flight from Savannah to Annapolis.  BMac plans to join us for a long weekend in the Bahamas with the airline credits that he has since we didn’t actually deliver him to the appropriate location.

Hinckley Boat Yard did not disappoint.  On the same day that our rebuilt fuel injector pump returned to the yard from the subcontractor, Bob had it re-installed on the Perkins.  Brian paid the bill, and after I scraped him up off the ground, we cast off from the dock and set out once more.  This time, destined for Thanksgiving…

  1. Too bad you are undoubtedly to late to make to St Marys, GA in time for the huge Thanksgiving feast they have for cruisers heading south.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving, Scott & Kitty! Rode Trip is actually under the watchful eye of Phil…but we’ve traveled to California to spend time with the Grandjean family. Hope you and Kitty have a fabulous holiday!
