Wednesday, 9 December -- St. Pierre Creek (off the South Edisto River, SC

We’re actualy anchored in a tiny stream (creek) called Fishing Creek (OFF the St. Pierre Creek)… Which is in turn OFF the South Edisto River. I’ll insert the Lat / Long coordinates later (below)…. And IF you log onto the BLOG page, the map will show exactly where we are located…
Yesterday morning went from “Leisurely to Adrenalin” in about one MINUTE….
We were anchored in the Stono River, below (actually WEST of Charleston SC)….and were thinking about a nice slow trip down the Stono toward Beaufort SC….. and having a nice sausage/ egg / and muffin breakfast…WHEN a P/v (power boat passed our anchorage spot at “FULL TILT”…. Throwing us about a 3 foot WAKE…. (did not catch the name of vessel)…. ANYWAY… The wake literally BOUNCED the Autumn Borne OFF the Bottom…. NOT A GOOD SOUND…..
WELL… with that “wake UP call”….. we made quick work of turning on the motor, instruments, and made a quick anchor PULL….TIME to GO….before another idiot came along….

Fortunately, it was an easy anchor pull…. Came up quick and clean…. BUT Unfortunately we had floated over the top of A mud MOUND…. Which when trying to leave, we ran right into …. OK.. not good!! Back OFF….. OK…. Let’s try over here…. OK…. Success… back out toward AICW…. SO…. In less than 5 minutes our leisurely morning turned into a run down the STONO River….
OK…. What Now… to Beaufort….OR…… something else…. Check the WEATHER, and SEAS….
End result…. We chose to set the AB up for an OCEAN HOP tomorrow (Thursday / Friday) to Florida / Georgia Border (St. Mary’s inlet)….
That’s why we’re anchored off of Saint Pierre Creek…. ( it’s an easy OUT to the Atlantic Ocean anytime we choose to leave….

We’ve been on the Single Side Band (HF radio) each day and evening…. (for position reports, and listening for boating friends…and their locations…. This COVID thing has the normal cruising routines ALL screwed UP….) But, last night I finally heard “s/v Dalmatian”….(Tom and Marylou)… they finally got their antenna raised about 10 feet UP their backstay…. Makes a difference…. PLUS we’re getting their signal off the Ionosphere NOW… not skip….
Don’t know quiet yet where AB will end up for the WINTER…. (Fernandina FL / Vero Beach / St Mary’s GA/ Miami / OR all the way down to Marathon in the Keys)….. I guess We’ll SEE…

Anchorage today Fishing Creek N32 32.25 W 80 20.64 (32.53757 -80.34402)
