26/11/15 : Thanksgiving in St Marys

With the drama of Tuesday night behind us we have enjoyed the charms of this small waterfront town.  The camaraderie amongst the cruisers and generosity of the locals have both been top notch, we rides to the store available and various social events.  Last night was an oyster roast (we were assured they were delicious but not something I like and Paul is allergic to them) but the company was fun.  And today the townspeople hosted a Thanksgiving lunch for us all.

There was more sailing drama in the anchorage, fortunately not involving Tumi.  Another boat, swinging around wildly managed to cut through his anchor rope with his own propellor and went drifting off downstream!  A "flotilla" of dinghies gave chase and rescued the yacht only for one of the dinghies to run out of fuel on the return and have to be rescued!  This anchorage seems to be jinxed!

We're heading across the sound tomorrow to Cumberland Island, a national park, and hope to do a bit of hiking in the next couple of days.
