Alligator River-Pungo River Canal
Sunny, cloudy periods. 27C

A long boring streatch of the ICW.

A steady north-bound parade of boats.

Family of goats

Saw this family of wild goats on an island in S Carolina.

Bucksport Plantation Marina, SC

Bucksport is "in the middle of nowhere" SC. That's what Jeff, the owner of the marina told us, but he said his son Jeffrey would be happy to drive us anywhere we wanted to go. Jeffrey was a total gem, he drove us where we needed to go and then took us to his favorite restaurant, Luvans Fish Camp, and had dinner with us. He was a wealth of information about the history of Bucksport. The Marina is built on the site of a former plantation and many of the current residents of Bucksport are descendants of the slaves who worked on the plantation. Bucksport, SC is named after the same Mr. Buck as Bucksport, Maine, so says Jeffrey. We'll always remember Jeffrey!

Well you certainly have met some lovely new friends along the way. This is a trip you will always remember.
Church Creek/South Santee River
Sunny 27

Two more nights on the hook. Lots of beautiful anchorages in Georgia and the Carolinas - the best way to take advantage of the beautiful sunrises & sunsets, dolphins playing around the boat, and waking up every morning to a chorus of hundreds of singing birds (and it's free). Saw our first alligator today, just a small one but I wasn't quick enough to get a pic.

The only downside - no-see'ums, or as they call them here, gnats.

Beaufort, SC

Beaufort (pronounced BEW-fert) was one of our favorite stops. Beautiful old 18th century mansions line picturesque streets with huge trees hanging with Spanish moss. As an added bonus it was prom night and the prom attendees gather at the waterfront park (adjacent to the marina) for photos and socializing before the prom.
