Goodbye Charleston

Returning from another Thanksgiving that couldn’t be beat..on the dock on Tuesday and bound south on Wednesday 0900 to add 45 gallons of diesel. Head towards John’s Island with a serpentine path ICW. Anchoring early at 1600 just east of the Limehouse  Brige, as cold front with squall line was passing.

Pulling anchor 0830 continued past John and Kiawah Islands and getting to Factory Creek just east of Beaufort SC. Anchoring well up the creek in 12′ of water, dragged some, laid minimal scope.

Underway Friday heading past Hilton Head down Calibogue Sound under a sunny sky and brisk cool Northerly. Stopping in the Moon River with a little more anchor dragging.

Saturday cold morning, going at 0930 good day, weather same, passing numerous ocean inlets, Ossabaw, St Catherine’s, Sapelo, Doboy…this Black Beard country.

The landscape is miles and miles of marsh, with twisting and turning channel. Palm trees and Spanish Moss are mixing in more and more. Marsh grass denser and shorter.

Light getting low as we head into Saturday night, good looking side river here…but where does it go?…
