After many months of planning (and hours of loading the boat), we finally left Jacksonville Beach for our 7 month adventure aboard Zendo up the east coast. Many thanks to Alex Costas who came by for our send-off!
We left Beach Marine at 9:30 a.m. and headed for our first anchorage in Cumberland Island, GA. The weather was crystal clear and we arrived at about at 2:30. At various points along the journey, we had dolphins playing across our bow which we took as an auspicious sign!
We had a lovely dinner of crab cakes and mushroom risotto on the aft deck while watching a beautiful sunset. It doesn't get much better than this!
