From Florida to Georgia

When driving on the ICW (Intracoastal Waterway) it was an easy ride because you didn't have to care about the weather or the waves. You just had to pay attention to the tide and if you were able to pass the bridge.

From Jacksonville we took a short trip on the Atlantic side for about 25 miles and took the entry point in St. Simons Island which was located in the next state Georgia.

We needed to fill up our tanks with diesel and stayed one night in a marina. While Dieter and Charly went with an Uber to the supermarket Walmart Claudi, Niklas and Rocky went for a walk. Afterwards they made a small foto shooting...

From St. Simons we took the ICW to Brunswick. It was amazing that we saw a lot of dolphins in the ICW and also one alligator!

The next stop was at Sapelo Island where there was nothing. We anchored next to water reed and it was fascinating listening to the sound of the water and the whims.

  1. Hello Dieter family! I hope you remember Exuma Bahamas - where you met us eating lunch at the outdoor cafe in downtown Georgetown back in late February. My name is Cathy and I was with my husband (Doug) and my friend Joan. Your two little ones were so sweet and we struck up a conversation while waiting for our food. We are from Columbus, Ohio and go to Exuma every year in February. Joan and I were chatting the other day about your journey and we decided to follow your journey. You mentioned to us at the time that you wanted to head to Florida and up the coast to New York. Because of COVID, were wondered if you made it there since it was a hot spot for COVID. I very happy to see you decided to leave your boat in port in North Carolina and fly back to Germany before getting COVID. :) That was so wise of you!!! Loved your blogs and it was nice meeting you in Exuma! Take care!!! Cathy Rhoades
      Hi Cathy, Nice to hear from you. Of course we remember you. We have arrived in Maryland at the Chesapeake Bay where we will haul out our boat. In the middle of July we will fly back to Germany. Best regards, Claudia
