Rocky the Ronca Holds His Ground!
06 November 2016
We were happy to have found our anchorage in Wahoo Creek on Friday evening considering the forecast was for winds gusting to 35 kts. It was a long night as the forecast held true, plus the 7 ft. tide created a strong current that continually rocked the boat. I got up around 2 a.m to check on things and I couldn't believe what was happening, the tide would turn the boat one way, then a gust would spin it around and within a couple of minutes the boat would do a complete 360. Thankfully, our 45 lb. anchor plus 100 ft. of chain in 12 ft. of water held us firmly in place. None the less, it was a long night as we held our position 50 yds. from shore, but the street light shone brightly all night.
We were away early in the morning in order to cross the Little Mud River at high tide. After some motor sailing we arrived in St. Simons Ga. at 4 p.m. On the way we met up again with our friends on Raquilla and decided to share an anchorage with them. It had turned a little cool with a strong north wind so Dave invited us over for hot buttered rums to warm up, a great way to end the day.
I was up early this morning and put on the kettle, only then did I realize that the time had changed so it wa back to bed for awhile. Our friends headed off early and Bev and I decided to stay at a marina for the night to catch up on things. We're at Brunswick Landing Marina; what a find, free laundry, free pump out and get this free draft beer in the lounge. Sunday night is also potluck supper night so even though we didn't contribute, while we were doing laundry they insisted that we join them for dinner. Monday the plan is to head to Cumberland Island and explore the State Park where we spent time this spring with Bob and Liz.
