This is Madge, at home on her mooring in the St. Marys River. That’s the waterfront of St. Marys in the background. The St. Marys River is the boundary between Georgia and Florida, and the town is just up river from the barrier islands – Cumberland and Amelia – on the Georgia side.
It’s cold here right now, but the countdown clock is set for four months. In June, I’ll wrap up this phase of my professional career and we’ll begin our two-year adventure. Between now and then, we have a house to sell and stuff to either move, sell or give away. Hopefully, we’ll also have time to get Madge tuned up, fitted out and ready to roll. We’ve been working on this for a couple of years now, so we should be getting close to the end of the beginning.
