Brunswick, Georgia with Friends

After our late arrival the other night, it has taken me awhile to recover. Traveling a ditch in the dark is scary. You all know how well I see, especially without my contacts, but this is hair raising!! When we finally made the turn up to the marina, I was never so glad to see our dock and smiling faces!!

Brunswick is a really neat town and the docks are about center to Main Street. Schooner has a great grassy area to stretch her legs and by the way she has decided that playing with a golf ball is fun. She even retrieves it!!

We spent a day putting up Christmas lights on the boat. We trimmed the Bimini top in colored lights. I couldn’t talk Gordon into running lights along the life lines, it was too much trouble!!! Trouble is putting up lights on the house in 20° temperatures to me !! I pulled out the tree and decorated it and Gordon finished off the decorating the salon with the last of the lights. It isn’t the same as our home used to be, but when you add glade evergreen candles and put a burning fireplace video on the TV it comes close.

Sunday, we enjoyed a fabulous brunch with Dan and Debbie at The forth of May Café, it was definitely in the top 5 brunches of all time. The place was decorated beautifully for Christmas and the chef worked overtime with his presentation of the food. There was so much to choose from and we did really well at taking our time tasting everything!! I must say the eggs Benedict and the Mac & Cheese were my favorites.

This morning we walked around town with Dan and Debbie checking it all out. They have been here a couple weeks so they know it pretty good. Brunswick is a scrimping/ boat building community and still has many boats along the docks. Some offer fresh caught shrimp for sale, but we passed today. The American Cruise Ships that cruise the East coast and waterway make a stop here also. We met some of the crew and it sounds like it would be a fun trip for the non-boat owners out there. We stopped in a couple shops, which I will have to go back to, and checked out the Towns “Christmas” Tree and all their decorations. It is nice to see a place where it is still ok to say merry Christmas and not have anyone offended! We stopped at Foxes Pizza for a beer and a bite before heading back to the boat. Looks like we will be getting some rain and wind tonight….aaahhh its winter!!
