Homeward bound Febr'18 - Aug'18

 

Portugese man-o-war in the Gulfstream. We saw entire fleets! Upon arrival in Key West, the US Coast Guard was nowhere to be seen. And the Custom House appeared to be a museum. And we where not the only tourists!
The welcoming comittee Dinghy dock, very organised In memoriam of Hurricane Irma

Shipwreck museum

How many of these statues do they have in the US? How many replicas of the scooner "America" do they have in the US? But Sponge Bob seemed very original to us. Overnight sail to Miami. We timed our arrival well, just after sunrise
Approaching Miami Are you sure this is the way to go? I thought all fixed bridges had a clearance of 65 ft?! Oh oh, the VHF antenna!
Glad we are well insured for 3rd party liabilities These dinghies are our size! Fort Lauderdale, where the 1% live  
There are over a million alligators in the Everglades We saw them everywhere and up close Blue heron
Jezus bird Eyes bigger than his mouth A young osprey family Spoon bills?
A large variety of landscapes   No they are not dead. This is how cypresses look. Rain coming.
A visit to the Kennedy Space Center   The aft burners of the Apollo analogue technology!
The ICW between Port Canaveral and St Augustine Very shallow here yo bro!  
Castillo de San Marco, built in 1672 to protect St Augustine from pirates. Flaggler college, the former Ponce de Leon hotel, built as a luxury resort in 1888. Dutch tiles in St Augustine's cathedral "old" town
Rivers, creeks and marches around Savannah. What to make of "Runaway Negro Creek" ? And this is how it looks at ground level Isle of Hope, where the tide is the only time that matters Oak trees with Spanish moss in Wormsloe historic site
One of the many mansions in Savannah's historic district. Some are open to the public. 22 squares, a large park and a historic grave yard all down town Savannah! Old warehouses alongside the Savanna river front. Converted to restaurants and curio shops
For gator tail and fish baskets     Charleston, holy city, with 180 churches
