Beautiful Historic Beaufort

03 November 2016
Allan started his day with a swim!! This is hard to believe but it is true. The reason for the dip was that he wanted to inspect the zinc anodes and propeller blades as we continue to have a slight vibration. The temperature of the water is much warmer than Lake Champlain's as I did not hear a complaint. It was quite the procedure to complete this task as there was a 2 knot tidal flow. Everything checked out fine!

We headed to shore to meet Stu and Patsy for coffee. We enjoyed our visit with them as they took us on a walking tour through the historic town. We were impressed with their knowledge of the history of the area even though they moved here only two months ago.

We returned to the boat, raised the motor and dinghy and proceeded to the marina for fuel and a pump out. We finally got on our way around noon.

The journey today was leisurely and picturesque as we motored towards Savannah. We were planning on going offshore but the long range forecast was not favourable so we continued on the ICW. We found a quiet salt marsh anchorage about 5 miles from the Savannah River to anchor; it was getting late and we would not make it to Savannah.

The attached picture is of the "Hanging Tree" in Beaufort. Slaves that were caught while trying to escape were hung here. Hopefully, we have evolved!
