St. George Sound & Apalachicola to Panama City

Just east of the entrance to St. George Sound from the Gulf is Shipping Cove. Anchor 20 yards from the beach, walk 50 more yards and you can swim in the Gulf or just walk along your private, secluded beach. Then sail and motor to Apalachicola, stop for Grouper, shrimp and oysters, then travel west to St. Andrews Bay through what I am told is one of the most beautiful sections of the ICW. Easy sailing and motoring, no rock bottoms, many places to anchor, and wonderful scenery.

We sailed into the harbor at Kinsale, county Cork on a summer Saturday. Castle up on the hill, rolling green park and gardens filled with families enjoying the sun, and the town below with its half-timber buildings, cobblestone streets, and the docks all lined with fishing and pleasure boats. Needless to say, when we went to drop the main, the head stuck just above the spreaders and I had to shinny up to get it down before anyone in our audience noticed. Didn't have a camera with me.

Don't know how cool this was ... probably crazier than hell (I wasn't the skipper, just a grinder) ... 60 foot ketch fully rigged sailed through Woods Hole with no engine assist. Engine was running but out of gear.

For me it's Los Roques off the coast of Venezuela. This is a breathtaking archepelago, about 40 sq. miles of uninhabited reef islands too countless to count. The only occupied island is Gran Roque where the streets are dirt, no motorized vehicles other than the water and garbage trucks, and the people are friendly and attractive.
