Midnight in the Garden
13 July 2011 | Skull Creek Marina
Stephen Miller/Still Hot
From Jeckyll Island we have carefully wound our way through Georgia. We have travelled through the shallower sections at high or near high tide and we made it through without touching ground. The anchorages and for that matter the marinas can be quite buggy and repellant is a must. We stopped in Brunswick GA to have an alternator checked then anchored three nights before getting into Savannah.
We toured the city and checked out a museum and two historic homes. We checked out the shopping on River Street, which was primarily mostly T shirts and trinkets. We ate more ice cream than we should have due to the extreme heat. The moorage in Savannah is expensive and we found it very bumpy due to the constant ship and tug traffic on the river. There were no pump outs in Savannah and the marina had no facilities so we cut our visit short and left after two nights. We are in Skull Creek Marina tonight catching up on e-mail, laundry, etc.
