Twice To Cumberland Island Again!

Our daughter and her boyfriend came from Montana for a week so we went up to Cumberland Island for a couple of days during the last week of April. Then during the last week of May we went back up for a few days to meet up with some boater friends who had cruised down from Wrightsville Beach. This was already our third and fourth trip there in 2021!

While there we met with a group of about 20 teens and some parents from a neighborhood in Atlanta. They come to the island every year after school lets out. They have been dong this since 2009.

Our friends are also members of the DeFever owners club, and while there another DeFever came in, River Girl. We invited everyone over to Sonas for dinner on Friday evening.

We headed back home on Saturday morning to try and avoid the Memorial Weekend madness, the sandbars were already jam packed!

Some photos.

  1. Have you anchored at the Fort George River spot across from the plantation lately? Wondering if it’s still OK to anchor there. I draw 4 feet.
