Not Too Salty

20 November 2017


Sunday November 19
We decided to stay in Charleston one more day. A cold front came through last night. There were gale force winds offshore and it was pretty windy here in Charleston overnight too. We can relax a little since we have an extra day to prep for offshore. Compromise left the dock at noon to anchor out and will leave this evening for Savannah. We took a lyft to Magnolias for brunch with Diane and Grant. The food and service was over the top. Best grits ever! We spent the rest of the day doing boat chores, running jack lines and packing our ditch bag. Win and Carroll on Defiance, the sailboat in front of us, came over for a glass of wine at 5. They live across the river from Urbanna. We are all planning to go offshore tomorrow.
Monday November 20
Defiance left at 6 a.m. this morning. Diane and Grant also left early. They are going offshore to Hilton Head to visit friends. We have decided to leave about 9 a.m. for Brunswick, Georgia. It is still choppy in the harbor when we leave the dock at 8:45 a.m. The waves are big and rolling with about a four second interval as we leave the inlet. We are getting tossed back and forth. We put out the head sail and turn south. It's not any better.... maybe worse. We both agree that it is not going to be comfortable for who knows how long and we decide to turm around. We are not the only ones. A trawler and another sailboat do the same. As we head back in, I received a text from Karen that said they arrived in Savannah. She said it was "salty"! We get the wind, waves and weather reports from several different sources. One says that if you are a "salty sailor" you could've gone yesterday. We waited until today for the seas to calm down and they are still too high for us. Maybe we're just not that salty! We are back inside the harbor and drop the anchor across from the city marina at 1:00 p.m. We have BLT's for lunch. Carl studies our options while I put my leg up with ice on my knee in the cockpit. I injured it a few days ago and it is swollen. We will stay inside tomorrow.
