Oh....The Food Y'all!

24 April 2019

We enjoyed our two nights in Jekyll. We had dinner at Zachary's Riverhouse on Saturday night. A cold Corona tasted good with the delicious fresh steamed shrimp and crab cakes! Easter Sunday we had to do some chores to get ready to leave the next day. Carl gave Bay Breezin' a bath, again. I washed a load of laundry. We took the marina golf cart the long way around the island to take in the sights and to pick up a few provisions. We picked up some lunch ( chicken and waffles) from Dairy Queen's to take back to the boat. After lunch, and all of the laundry was dry, we took two of the marina bikes for a spin. There are bike paths all over the island, through the nature preserves and the historic district. In the historic district we got some ice cream at the Sweet Shoppe, and walked over to the hotel to watch a game of croquet. After riding the bikes around the beautiful old homes on "millionaire's row" we headed back to the marina. Our friends Lisa and Billy came out to see us. We met them here our first year cruising on Bay Breezin'. They had the same kind of boat. They have since sold their boat and now live in a condo on the island. We shared a few bottles of wine and some great stories. We enjoyed reminiscing and catching up.


We left the dock at 9 a.m.After fueling up and pumping out, we were off by 9:30. We passed the dredge in the middle of the channel at 10 a.m. We are glad to see this long overdue dredging through Georgia. It is clear, sunny and buggy! I put all of the screens in before we left in anticipation of the bugs. The noseeums just about ate us alive at the fuel dock. Once we were moving, we started to see bigger flies, then biting flies, then horseflies. Thank goodness for the screens! We had a nice day with a cool breeze, motoring back and forth and in and out of the rivers of Georgia. We made good speed, even when the tides turned. We stopped at 5:20 p.m. and anchored on the Wapoo River. A sweet, calm anchorage.


I could've sat in the cockpit all morning watching the dolphins play. This is the best part of traveling on the ICW. I love the anchorages. We must move on, so we weighed anchor at 7:50 a.m. There were 4 other boats in the anchorage. There were surprisingly few bugs this morning. It was a gorgeous day. We were averaging around 5 kts. with the tide against us. When the tide turned, we were humming along at 7.25 kts. Carl spotted a bald eagle on the shore. I tried to take a video of some dolphin, again, without success. We pulled along side the face dock at Thunderbolt marina in Savannah at 3 p.m. We took an Uber to Paula Deen's Creek House for dinner. We had oysters and fish with cheese grits and sweet potatoe casserole. It was really yummy! We have been enjoying some beautiful weather, but another front is on the way, so we will push ahead to South Carolina.


We left Savannah this morning at 8:30a.m. Thunderbolt delivered Krispy Creme doughnuts to our boat this morning. Just what we needed! Ha! We are moving slow, timing the opening of the next bridge at 9. There are three trawlers traveling the same way. They can all get under the bridge and don't have to wait for an opening. The bridge was having issues with one span that would not open. We got through, but it was a little tight. We crossed the Savannah River before 10 a.m. Yay! We are in South Carolina. We motored past Daufuskie Island just as a ferry unloaded a boat full of people. There were people parasailing off of Hilton Head. We arrived at Port Royal Landing marina near Beaufort, S.C. At 3 p.m. We will spend a few days here. It is a nice marina with a courtesy car and bikes for us to use. Dinner will be a salad onboard tonight!
