After the excitement of our offshore sail and the discovery of our quaint anchorage on Eddings Creek, I collapsed into a coma at 7 pm and slept eleven hours. The sun was already up this morning by the time I had my coffee on deck. We noodled away the morning on boat chores. Tammy cleaned and tightened all the lifelines, while I cleaned out a locker and serviced the engine. Tammy watched a fawn make a brave attempt to swim across the creek, then give up and turn back.
We weighed anchor at noon and began a pleasant, uneventful motor cruise that took us up Morgan River, Parrot Creek, Coosaw River and Brickyard Creek to our final resting place in a snug slip here in downtown Beaufort. We stepped onto earth at 4PM for the first time since we left Little River Friday morning.
We took a short stroll through Beaufort. Along the way, I bothered a stranger to take our picture on the waterfront. The bridge behind us is Ladies Island Swing Bridge, which was opened for us. (Sorry to all the motorists).
I shot a video of Eddings Creek anchorage. It's on Aria's You Tube page at right, or you can link directly to it here
