Cumberland Island 1
George climbed the mast and fixed the lazy jacks very quickly this morning. We have our fingers crossed that they will hold! In the afternoon we took the dinghy to shore to explore the island. It is beautiful with thick live oak forests, a wide sandy beach, and wild horses. We rented a couple of bicycles to make it easier to get around the island. We rode down to the southern end of the island and visited the ruins of Dungeness, a former Carnegie "cottage". We hope to be able to participate in the Land and Legacies tour tomorrow, if they have any cancellations. If not, we will ride the bikes to the north end for our own tour. We are enjoying watching a large number of dolphins that come around a few times a day. Some of them really like to like to play.
