"Rejoice" Epic Adventure

Rick's dream has come true

We left our home port of Ponce Inlet, Florida yesterday Monday, April 9, 2018 at dawns early light and had our first full day of travel to St. Augustine, FL.  We celebrated our first day of cruising and the fact that I hooked the mooring ball on the first try with a bottle of Dom Perignon on the aft deck. Unfortunately, the weather has been dismal ever since.   In fact we even had quarter size hail today!  It sounded like hammers inside the boat.  Rick did most of the driving today from the pilot house protected from the elements.  This is a first for him as he LOVES to drive the "Rejoice" from the flybridge.  We are now anchored in a safe harbour near Cumberland Island, GA.  The weather is supposed to improve tomorrow and we will be happy to see some sunshine.  Even though the weather hasn't been to our liking our spirits are high and we look forward to our cruising days to come.  We have plenty of good food, drinks and quarters for laundry so we are well prepared for whatever comes our way.
