Green Turtle Cay, when the name rings in your ears, you immediately want to go there to explore its wonderful hidden treasures, and that warm fuzzy feeling you have for the name, is solidified when you step on its shores.
Excited was an understatement. We were elated, euphoric, ecstatic? Maybe words cannot describe how we felt to be crossing the Gulf Stream into the Bahamas to begin our winter in paradise.
The winds have died down and we were eager to get back out cruising and to arrive in Florida. We left our anchorage in GA and spent our first night in Florida at a free dock in Jacksonville. The next day we took a mooring in St. Augustine, FL for 2 days. The moorings were $20 per night which gave us access to the marina’s facilities and their dinghy dock. This little town was one of the most lovely we have visited so far on the trip. We enjoyed the cobble stone streets shopping at little boutiques and enjoyed some great food while being surrounded by old Spanish architecture. Check out the episode after the jump to see what we mean.
