Awendaw Creek

Wednesday, March 29, 2017- Just south of McClellanville, SC

Charleston SC

We left St. John’s Yacht Haven about 11am, traveled a short way up the Stono River, an even shorter motor through Elliot’s Cut and into Charleston harbor, stopped at the City Marina fuel dock, and were in our assigned space on the inside of the Mega pier (Boy do we feel small compared to most of the yachts around us) by noon. We have seen at least a dozen other boats with home ports around Annapolis. We will be here until Wednesday when we head for an anchorage at McClellanville to allow for us to take the next morning’s high tide through McClellanville and on to Georgetown, SC. The Captain

St. John's Yacht Basin

We finally did it! Ran aground, that is. We got distracted by a power boater who had no idea he kept crisscrossing our path at a slower speed that we were going. Unfortunately, the distraction resulted in us missing a significant change in where the next red marker was, and we bumped and came to a stop. [...]

Port Royal Marina

We had a very uneventful day today as we motored from Isle of Hope to Port Royal Landing Marina in Beaufort, SC. The weather was perfect and the trouble spots we went through were no trouble. Tomorrow we plan to motor about 42 miles and anchor in Steamboat Creek. Steamboat Creek is about 30 miles from [...]

Isle of Hope Marina, Ga

Well, we got a surprise today as we made far better travel time than we expected. We were helped by some tail winds and some boosts from tides going our way (and maybe some miscalculation in the planning). We went right by Kilkenny Marina and are now docked in Isle of Hope Marina in Suburban Savannah. [...]

New Teakettle Creek, Georgia

Plans went exactly as planned today. We made the first trouble spot in Georgia, the Little Mud River, exactly at high tide. We went through with no problems and are now anchored in New Tea Kettle Creek in the middle of Nowhere, Georgia. The next two stops will be in Kilkenney Marina and then Isle of [...]

Jekyll Island, GA

20 March 2017
We left Palm Cove Marina by 7:15 and motored through the more open lands of north eastern Florida and the very rural lands of south eastern Georgia. We passed by the city of Fernandina Florida and along the western shore of Cumberland Island Georgia and most of the way past Jekyll Island, Ga. We are docked in Jekyll Harbor Marina. We will be heading up along the ICW into the wilds of Georgia, hopefully anchoring in New Tea Kettle Creek in the middle of Nowhere, Georgia. The next two stops will be in Kilkenney Marina and then Isle of Hope Marina near Savannah. The Captain

Once we arrived in Jekyll Harbor, we found out there is a courtesy golf cart! This just made my day. We drove the golf cart to the market and the beach and the Jekyll Harbor Club and even to order pizza! Second to looking at the water, I love golf carts, even if you do drive them on the regular road and there are big trucks right behind you! The speed limit is the speed limit no matter what you are driving. It’s the best. The Admiral
