Blue View - River Rules Apply

As I write this, we have completed most of the 770+ miles of the ICW from St. Augustine, FL to Norfolk, VA. We went outside into the coastal Atlantic waters for only a short stretch between Charleston and Georgetown, SC, primarily because the tides were wrong and we would have either had to wait most [...]

Along the ICW - Day 7

We were up with the sun once again and plying our way up the Waccamaw River. We were under the fixed Ocean Highway Bridge by just after 0630. Yes, there was another beautiful sunrise. Yes, I took a photo or two … and yes, I’m sharing the best one. Some things (and people) are very predictable.

A Day in Charming Charleston

Native Charlestonians will tell you that the Ashley and Cooper Rivers join to form the Atlantic Ocean. Located at about the middle of South Carolina’s coastline at the confluence of the two rivers, Charleston is the oldest city in the state and it’s a gem. We discovered its charms in 2000 on our [...]

We're really missing that mill pond!

31 January 2011 | Southern Arm, Dagg Sound
Marcie
An addendum to our earlier report today... The sun peeked through and we spotted a tiny batch of blue sky for awhile today, but then the rain and wind returned...for a change. This certainly surpasses our expectations for Fiordland...though we've read several accounts of sailors waiting as much as three weeks for a weather window to go around Southwest Cape - east or west. We're certainly ready for a respite and a touch of the weather we had when we first arrived.

The bay around us is milk chocolate brown, heavy with silt, run-off and debris. Swollen logs and branches drift by quickly propelled by the ebb current and wind. Though the winds have abated some and we're expecting some northwest winds, the fishermen report 20-25' seas from the southwest. Until the seas calm a bit, it's still not a good time to hazard more southerly progress. The forecast for the next couple of days calls for more of the same. Where's that mill pond anchorage we were accustomed to?
