The fleet left on Friday and headed up to Fernandina. We all had reserved slips at Oyster Bay Harbor Yacht Club and were all assigned slips on Dock C. We dressed Sonas with our flags after tying up.
We had a fun Docktail party followed by a cook-out with our hosts on Friday night.
On Saturday we headed over to Fernandina and walked the festival, looked at the shrimp boats, the art stalls and ate some, what else, shrimp!!
We came across one guy selling animals made of old scrap. He had dinosaurs, sheep, and dogs. We loved one particular dog and brought him back to Sonas. Since he was made of old metal parts we initially called him Rusty. Then we noticed that one of his golf club ears was a Wilson, with the name on the top, so he was renamed Rusty Wilson!
Saturday night we had dinner at the Oyster Bay Club – a very nice location overlooking the natural areas of North East Florida. The food, wine, dancing and company were all first class.
We spent a lazy Sunday morning at the dock. Queen’s Habour boats left at their leisure during the morning. The Proctor’s invited us over to ESCAPE for lunch, after which we untied and headed off for home, arriving back an home dock around four!
A wonderful weekend!
