DOLPHINS AND ALLIGATORS
29 October 2010 | Price Creek
As it turned out "The Rockpile" was noneventful, no groundings :). Wednesday night we anchored at Prince Creek (ICW Mile Marker 382). We were the only ones there, very peaceful and quiet. Thursday night we stayed at Hazzard Marine in Georgetown, SC. Nice town and marina. Georgetown is the third oldest city in South Carolina. Unlike many small towns we have visited this one seemed to be doing much better financially. The town has lots of restored buildings and homes with many almost 300 years old. We stopped at a fish market and bought 2 pounds of fresh shrimp which we plan on eating when anchored tomorrow night.
Tonight (Friday) we are anchored in Price Creek, just north of Charleston by about 35 miles (ICW Mile Marker 448). The thrill of the day was having a dolphin swimming along side the boat!! We saw 2 alligators; good sized ones around 6 feet each.
We had shrimp on the barbie tonight. Bill is a happy camper tonight; we are finally in a location that he is actually catching fish. Well, 2 very small stingrays and 5 unidentifiable fish (no keepers) so far. One of the stingrays stung his wrist when he tried to get it off the hook - hopefully he won't pull a Steve Irwin!
Tomorrow we will be in Charleston. We plan on spending 3 nights there, great city.
I received an email from someone at Northern Breezes magazine saying they have been following our blog and asked if they could use some of the material, I replied and said sure. If anyone happens to see anything in the magazine in the future let me know.
