Jekyll Island Georgia more new friends

We do get up with the sun!

We needed fuel today so we called ahead to the Jekyll Island marina in Georgia.  They said they were only going to be open until 12:30 PM.  So we had to hurry and get started at 7AM to make sure we got there before 12:30.

When we arrived they offered to let us dock for free.  Usually it was $20 for a day dock.  We had issues with the fuel filter and needed to change it.  (One of those things we learned how to do for ourselves)  So we decided to stop for lunch out on Thanksgiving.

We met Randy Prentis at the dock helping us land the boat.  That is always an advantage.

First we talked to Brian and Fran.  They are sort of thinking about a live aboard sailboat in the future and they had come out to sail there boat.  Unfortunately for it’s size it was to rough with 25 knot winds.  Interesting getting a chance to know them.

When we went inside a couple from Atlanta GA were there for the holiday and started talking to us.  They were so friendly they are thinking of a motor home or a sailboat.  I’m sure they will find what they are looking for.

As we were leaving I thought I should take a picture of the Christmas tree they had up.  Just to remind us of back home and how cold it is getting to be.
