Gale warning this morning gave us a chance to be lazy, and sleep in. The winds were supposed to die down about noon so the Captains decided to make the short trip to Thunderbolt, they wanted to set us up in position to do another ocean run tomorrow if the conditions are good, if not we stay in the ICW.
We pulled out of Hilton Head at noon, still with some wind to navigate, but doable. It ended up being a nice sunny day.
A short and sweet trip, we pulled into Safe Harbor Bahia Bleu marina at about 2:20 pm! Below are some of the sights from today and John in jeans and a jacket (something he refused to do until today!)
