Passage Sunbury Crab Co - Isle Of Hope Marina
37 SM 6.0 Engine Hours
7:48 AM Underway
12:54 PM Docked port side to Isle Of Hope Marina

Another cold and rainy day. I almost put on shorts, but decided I should probably wear jeans as it was chilly and damp. It was 45º damp with misty rain from time to time. It certainly was not a shorts day.

After getting underway I got colder. I drank coffee and also held the cup to keep my fingers warm. I finally pulled my wind pants over my jeans and wind breaker over my fleece jacket. I was finally staying warm. To me, damp 45º is a cold that penetrates you more than below freezing temperatures.

Our passage took us down the Medway River to St. Catherines sound, the Ogeechee River, Hell Gate, Vernon River, Burnside River and finally Skidaway Narrows to Isle Of Hope. At every one of these junctions current change -sometimes with you and sometimes against you. Today the currents were mostly with us. Lots of turns today. You have to be on top of your game in Georgia as the ICW is shoaled in many places.

WE planned an early arrival at Isle Of Hope as we were having guests come from Columbia, SC and Spring Island, SC. Joan & Bob and Lindsey & Jim are all lifelong friends from Susan’s hometown of Lynchburg, Va.

Lindsey & Jim have stayed aboard Liquid Therapy. But Joan & Bob had never seen the boat and our home for the last 6 months. They arrived and I gave Bob & Jim the bridge tour while Susan showed the girls the living quarters. We all chatted a while and then Lindsey drove us to a nice nearby restaurant. More great LOCAL seafood was eaten by all! It was fun seeing all of these old friends and getting a car ride too. Isle Of Hope is one of the most beautiful places we stop with beautiful homes and large live oak trees. And of course Spanish moss.
