Well, we're having no problem finding dockage because everyone leaves Florida in the summer... and we've discovered why -- it'a stinking hot with temps in the 90s and humidity at 80%.

We arrived about noon today at Golden Isles Marina near Brunswick GA, used the courtesy car for a run to the grocery store, then Vicki spent a couple hours doing laundry at the marina laundry facility. She decided not to do laundry onboard thinking that it's not a good idea to operate our washer and dryer in the 100-degree heat in the engine room -- they're really not designed to operate in that heat, and replacing them would be a major, major headache.
