Finally, I docked at Golden Isle Marina. A thunderstorm was looming as I docked.

One skipper quipped - "you got in at just the right time."

I said "I know."

We both laughed.

This marina seems like a really good fit. They have laundry and a courtesy car - which is actually a courtesy car - a vehicle to use for a quick trip to the grocery. Also I was told they deliver newspapers and muffins - the most important thing - to the boats in the morning.

I noticed several other boats that were outfitted for long voyages. I thought gee, this is my kind of place. I hope the rest of the places I stop at on this trip are like this.
