Just sitting here in the mud like fools.

We’re not really putting up long posts at the moment, but I feel a little guilty about our lack of info, so: here are some glorious pictures of us aground off Amelia Island in the ICW.

Yup. Stuck.

Setting the anchor so we don't drift further into the shallows when the tide came up.

Setting the anchor so we don’t drift further into the shallows when the tide came up. No kedging this time; we managed to get stuck on a rising tide, so we just sat tight for a few hours.

Today we’re lounging happily in the sun in Titusville, waiting to watch a rocket launch tomorrow evening; but as the pics attest: it’s not all wine and roses, folks! Hope this makes our northern friends feel better about the approaching snow.

  1. Happy Thanksgiving. We started our day with giving the girls an update on how you were doing. We miss you and hope you get out of that mud quickly! :)

  2. Everyone grounds on the ICW – everyone. If someone says they never grounded, you know they either never left the dock or they are pathological liars! Welcome to the club, its an ancient and honored group.;-)
