Early morning start - air-conditioner packed away - this time in the locker as we may use at a marina stop-over. and underway. Past "golden" rushes, egret's fishing and pelican crowded navigation buoys as we motor out of St Simon's channel onto a calm sea, a light breeze and clear blue sky - perfect! Mainsail set, just off head-to-wind we cruise south at 5 knots, slipping past shrimpers on the way down. As the wind strengthened and veered south-easterly, full sails set and a brief sail without the motor before coming up upon St Mary's inlet buoys and our route inward. Anchor set by 4:00pm in our "usual" spot alongside Cumberland Island - all alone, no other boats over-nighting with us this time. Dinner outside in a cool evening breeze and early to bed - watching the marks routinely throughout the night to ensure we don't drag the anchor - all was calm and quiet.
