Cumberland Island by Sailboat
It’s time to explore Cumberland Island – land of the wild horses – and to see if the cousins of the Carrot Island herd are as bloodthirsty as their kin.
No joking now… Cumberland is WONDERFUL. This is a place we would definitely like to revisit for at least a week, to thoroughly explore, and to experience this wild and wonderful place all over again.
It’s just great, and I’m sure anyone else who has been there before would certainly agree!
12.6 There was so much rain and lightning last night. It was so close that it was scary! Today we left for Cumberland Island, but it started raining so hard about an hour into our sail, that we couldn’t see anything. So we stopped in front of the waterpark on Jekyll Island. N31*02.338 W81*25.497
12.7 Finally on our way to Cumberland today! YAY! I have been looking forward to Cumberland Island since we left Maryland. I hope that it doesn’t disappoint.
We got here early enough that we went over to the island to check it out. We saw the horses, the ruins, armadillos, deer, turkeys, walked on the beach and all the cool trees. Cumberland is so beautiful and did not disappoint! I am so excited to go back tomorrow! N30*45.411 W81*28.613
12.8 We did some school work this morning, then went over to the island. We had such a great day! First we walked over to the ranger station to get a map, then we walked through the campground over to the beach. We walked along the beautiful untouched beach for probably an hour down to the other beach entrance. We saw horses near the beach. From the beach, we waked to the salt marsh, the cemetery and back to the ruins. We saw so many horses and turkey’s today. I love Cumberland! It’s our favorite stop so far!
