Jekyll Island to Skidaway Island

We stayed at Jekyll Island for a couple days. It was here that we learned how to communicate in the south. People here are very friendly and you will always get a "How y'all doin?" We would reply "Very well, thank you, how about yourself?" With that we got a quizical look and silence, so we thought we must be saying something wrong. We were determined to get to the bottom of this, so the next time we came across some people, we were the first to give the greeting. Mike said "How y'all doin?" and their replay was "Fiiiine" followed by "It's hot for sure though." Next people it was Kim's turn, "How y'all doin?" their reply "Goooood" followed by "Those clouds might make a visit." So we tried it out, when anyone asked how we were doing, we'd say Fiiiiine or Goood, and we got a smile in return and sometimes even a conversation. It was also here that we found out about Delegal Creek Marina and decided to give it a shot. We had asked about staying at Jekyll Island Marina because we wanted to stay in Georgia, but there was a long waiting list for long term transients, so we decided to head on to Skidaway Island and Delegal Creek Marina.

So here we are a Delegal Creek Marina in Savannah, Georgia working and saving money. We are getting alot of improvements done to the boat, like replacing all the port windows, replacing all all the hatch lexan and revarnishing the teak. We are also working on a new hot water heater, new showers, faucets and sinks, the list goes on. In the next posts we will show you a few pictures of the surrounding area, which is beautiful, and some of the improvements we have made.

Hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas, Cheers from Mike and Kim on Ka'imi
