No sooner did we pull up our anchor, and begin back tracking down the channel, yet another sailing vessel north bound, hail Georgia's Skidaway Bridge operator. To our disbelieve the bridge operator said loud and clear over the radio channel 9, "Captain I will be opening now to let you pass, over and out".
How and why, we didn't ask questions, but immediately did a U turn to make our safe passage under the bridge too! As you can see we finally did.
What a twist, what a total surprise.
O yeah, and that tug boat parked to the right side of the channel under the bridge, was he part of the working boats? No, it appears, he too was waiting for the bridge to open. Turns out, this was the very same tug we passed yesterday, along the ICW from SC into Georgia. Surprise surprise!
