Matanzas River Inlet Anchorage to Rock House Creek Anchorage

18 December 2008 | (N29o03.677; W80o55.881)
5:52pm 9ft of water.

What a beautiful travel day. The predicted fog didn't materialize where we were - it was just hazy so we were able to leave around 9:30am with sunshine. I actually FEEL like I'm in Florida now. The smell of the water, and feel of the moisture on my skin are remembering previous times.

The first anchorage we went by was to shallow. Don't know why but the charts were way off (even though they said depths might be different) but we were uncomfortable so moved on. I'm glad we did - even though we got in at dark the area is small but the depths are better.
