Foggy Fernandina Beach, Florida

December 15, 2006

After a 2 mile trek to Radio Shack and everyone’s favorite store, Walmart, yesterday, we had the supplies we needed to enhance our SSB antenna. The SSB radio will be essential for us to receive weather reports, however we need to devise a larger, more powerful antenna. Hans has been doing his research and came up with a solution, but it’s pretty hard to test it out when we’ve been socked in with very dense fog for the past 2 days (today is day 3 of heavy fog). It’s really odd to be at anchor in such dense fog. We can barely see the anchor lights of other boats and at times it feels like we’re suspended in the clouds. The water is very still and there hasn’t been much wind. Winter in Florida I suppose!

There were lots of sea shells scattered about
