WHOOSH is on a distinguished road
Melbourne to St Augustine

Dagerman:

If you come in at St. Augustine - or if you''d consider coming in a far better entrance not much further north - than I''d recommend you consider an extended stay at Cumberland Is., on the N side of the St. Mary''s River (which is wide, deep and has buoyage for the nuke boats transiting in/out of Kings Bay). Cumberland is a treasure, (mostly) unoccupied except for daytrippers, there are several walking tours done by the National Parks personnel, the old Carnegie Mansion is there to prowl around, and the wild horses on the beach are a treat to watch. The anchorage is usually well protected, offers water at the floating dinghy dock, and it''s a blissful place to spend some time.
