Postcards from the ICW - #5

So this is where Shrimp & Grits comes from !

...It was a dark and stormy night...
That's how a lot of good sea stories begin.  But tonight the phrase takes on a totally different meaning.
In the last two days we have put 150 miles behind us.
If you are driving on the interstate it only represents 2 hours.
If you are flying in a commercial jet, its barely 20 minutes.
But if you are driving a slow boat it represents two long ten-hour days.
That calls for a celebration worthy of my favorite adult beverage.
So, in fact, it was a Dark & Stormy night!

Dark & Stormy - the national drink of Bermuda.
