Last of the Sweet Potatoes. CA bought a bushel. A bushel! of potatoes from the Merry Vale farm stand in Deltaville. In September.
A bushel! $13.00
Four months later, they're finally done. We've had a lot of good meals based on a bushel (!) of sweet potatoes.
Don't try this with grocery store potatoes — they may not keep as well as fresh-from-the-dirt farm stand potatoes.
In other news, we picked up the mooring ball on the first try. I think we're getting better at this.
It was cold. It still January. We're still a bit too far north to be comfortable. Next near, we'll try to move south more quickly.
No mayday or pan-pan today. Just the endless stream of securité calls that you hear around commercial dockage and military bases.
The Tolomato River was beautiful. The run between Jacksonville and St. Augustine ranks right up with the Waccamaw River as being a scenic wonder.
The St. Augustine Cruiser's Net has an event tonight at Meehan's — Claiborne Young of Salty Southeast Cruiser's Net will be speaking. Don't want to miss that. The Cruiser's Net and Active Captain are the two premier sources of current information on the Atlantic ICW.
