Diverse Scenery

19 November 2012 | South Santee River, ICW mile 420, South Carolina

Friday's cast off shortly after 9 AM from Southport would have been delayed if the tide were any higher, as the water level was already reaching the top of the fixed dock. A productive day was in progress from that moment on, defrosting the freezer, preparing for the tasks once we reached Cricket Cove Marina at 2:30 PM where we took care of topping off fuel and water supplies, laundry, plus some reprovisioning.

Saturday's 8:45 AM cast off was quickly followed by transiting past the Little River Swing Bridge, the "Rockpile", the Barefoot Landing Swing Bridge, Myrtle Beach, and the Socastee Swing Bridge into the eerily tranquil beauty of the Waccamaw River with spanish moss covered trees and floating clusters of water plants. At 4:15 PM we dropped the hook at Butler Island, north of Georgetown, South Carolina, where we were in the company of four other boats that night, and one other last night as we waited out yesterday's rain.

At 10 AM this morning we hauled anchor, and concluded the day's passage at 2 PM, anchoring in the South Santee River, where there would eventually be a total of six boats anchored for the night.

During these passages we have seen seven bald eagles (including a nesting pair), plus dolphins, palm trees, and fall foliage colors.
