South Carolina

05 April 2007
The last few days have been filled with intense traveling, boat chores, and tourist activities. We enjoyed an afternoon on Cumberland Island. We both mixed in with the tourists except we left our fanny pack at home. While exploring the island Maddie played with the armadillos and wild horses. She got up close and personal with Maddie"dillo". Perplexed as to what it was she sniffed the body armor and then decided that it was not a furry creature like herself.

The following day we decided to spend the night in Fernandina Beach ad stage for our crossing the Charleston the following day. All of the boats that have been making the passages with us left the day before so we were on our alone. We ventured 30 miles out into the Atlantic with the lure trolling and spirits high. We motored into the evening and through the night. We were alone in the ocean with a full moon. We arrived in Charleston the following morning and were greeted by some friends of our from the Bahamas. What a small ocean! Following a night of lost sleep we did the following chores:
cleaned the boat
walked 2 mile to a Mexican restaurant (it has been 5 months since my last cheese dip)
walked to the Grocery Store
changed the oil
filled the fuel cans
filled the water tanks

All before dark. Needless to say we were exhausted. We made plans for the following day to take the ICW for the next week until the winds and seas settle down. They are calling for gale force winds tomorrow out into the Atlantic. The calm waters of the ICW are a welcomed changed from the rough seas we have seen in the past.
