Jon,

The outside trip saves about 68 miles if you leave Florida at Fernandina Inlet and come back inside at Paris Island. Also takes a lot of the headaches out of the excursion with Georgia's unkept segment of the ICW. Today, the winds were howling at 25 and gusty from the north and northwest, so I opted to remain inside and spend the night at Jekyll Harbor Marina, where I can also spend the night in relative comfort with their electrical power hookup. Tonight's forecast is for temperatures in the 30s.

Tomorrow morning, I'll head out of the inlet at Saint Simons and make my way north to Paris Island or Beaufort, SC.

Cheers,

Gary
