Re: Thanksgiving in St Mary's

cumberland island is a national park. you will pass close by it as you enter the st marys river on your way to st marys. we spent a week there and will certainly go back. possibly the last great pristine seashore on the southern usa east coast. incredible live oak forests, wild horses, turkeys, armadillos, sea oats covered seashore. here are some links -

www.cumberlandisland.com

www.nps.gov/cuis/

or look it up on wikipedia.

Re: Thanksgiving in St Mary's

I agree about Cumberland Island. Fabulous natural history plus human history that includes famous Revolutionary hero and a Carnegie Mansion (private). Fernandina Beach is also fabulous, the history of American architecture including block after block of eye-popping Victoriana. Great restaurants, fascinating old cemetery and Civil War-era re-enactments regularly at the big ol' brick fort.

Re: Thanksgiving in St Mary's

Cumberland Island is less than a 30min ride from where I'm at... Going there Sunday as the grandkids love to jump off the top of our boat (21') then we'll grill burgers and dogs on the grill.....
Then dingy over and walk the island......

Re: Thanksgiving in St Mary's

St Mary's is a lovely place. Make a stop at Cumberland Island and visit Plum Orchard Mansion.

Re: Thanksgiving in St Mary's

jaxfishgyd - my apologies for not mentioning fernandina beach.

for those who don't know it's the next town south on the icw after leaving st marys. many many beautiful old homes and a really nice town to just walk around and gawk. also a home made ice cream shop that makes the best root beer floats - we had them every day we were there....

Re: Thanksgiving in St Mary's

My husband and I hope to be in the area of St. Marys as we bring our boat down from the Chesapeake to south Florida. I interviewed the Cruisers Coordinator, Ann Barr, for an article about the event in the November issue of All at Sea - Southeast. Ann sent me wonderful pictures from past events to go with the article however they are not high enough resolution.

Does anyone here have any pictures they can share that are larger than 1 MB in size. You will be given full credit for the picture. If so please send them to terry dot boram at gmail dot com.

I can't wait to celebrate Thanksgiving in St. Marys. The townspeople are awesome.

Re: Thanksgiving in St Mary's

I think we will try to join in as well. We are currently at Beach Marina in JAX but it would be a short sail up. Or actually we could drive if they take 'road cruisers'.

I have heard about this event for years and hope to go this year!
