Stuck in Georgia

We are anchored off Ossabaw Island out here on the barrier islands and can't bear to leave it's so incredibly beautiful and peaceful, nothing but birds and pigs and deer and endless trails and no people.
We were on our way to Key West but there's 10 days of Florida between here and there and Florida is such a, well you know.
What a surprise Georgia and South Carolina have been.

If you are stuck in heaven don't complain about the harp music.

The salt marshes in South Carolina are beautiful this time of year, especially at sunrise. Be traveling through them next month.

Georgia is Beautiful, but just be sure you don't stay too long. Living aboard your boat is illegal in Georgia. There is a yearly maximum of 30 days allowed overnight on your boat before you are considered live aboard and subject to arrest and fines. Interestingly enough the law does not specifically say those 30 days must be in GA waters, but I think it's enforced that way. Despite the Beauty of those salt marshes Georgia doesn't want you there.

I second stopping at Cumberland Island. It's a beautiful place for hiking, camping or just hanging out at the beach. We usually skip Georgia on the ICW and go outside until the inlet at Fernandino Beach. Cumberland Island is just to the north.

and you know, well Florida is.... WHAT??? Also a resident of Florida, what do you consider it? At least the law won't arrest you if you stay over 30 days

Well........ You see I'm from Florida, but I grew up there BD, Before Disney. Before Air conditioning. Before it was covered in concrete. When the beaches were open and beautiful and didn't require sand pumping because someone built concrete seawalls on the dunes. When the water was clean and the reefs were beautiful. Before lovebugs. When you could drive down AIA and actually see the water. Before the watercops were thicker than the mosquitoes. When you actually saw the coast come over the horizon, not 30 story condos. When if you wanted to see whales you went to the beach, not Sea World. When in the summer you could set your watch by the afternoon rain because the center of the state was covered with swamps not concrete. Where you could get the best citrus in the world. All of this stuff came to an end with Disney and air conditioning.

I can't tell you what Florida is any more but I think I told you what it's not any more.

You must have grown up next door to my Capn!His family was one of the first to travel on I4 when it opened, with his daddy telling them, who on earth would want to drive to Tampa??? I haven't been here that long, but I have seen some of those things you were refer to, and there are still some pristine spots along the shoreline in SW Florida, where we are now.

I was posing that question to Lorenzo B. wondering what is so bad about Florida
