Goodbye Pascagoula

13 April 2012 | Mississippi Sound bound for Florida
We made an attempt to leave yesterday, but the wind was on our nose, and the seas were very uncomfortable. So, here we go again! Today, the seas are way better. We should be going by Dauphin Island around noon today. Our destination is Ingram's Bayou just North of Orange Beach, Alabama. Our estimated time of arrival should be just before dark. It will be a long day! The wind is still on our nose, so once again, we have to motorsail.

Pascagoula was pretty neat. We stayed in the Inner Harbor for free, and met some really nice people. It was another place that could be hard to leave, but we have to get moving. For our friends sailing this way, the Inner Harbor is a "must stop". Just get with us, and we will give you the particulars. The water there is a little skinny for our 5 1/2' draft, so low tide can be a bit of an issue. We left about an hour after low tide, and plowed our way out, but it is a soft mud bottom.

Robyn is driving as I type this, and we are about to make our turn into the Intracoastal Waterway. This portion of the ICWW is in Mississippi Sound and doesn't provide the protection like it does on the inside. We will be on the outside until we get to the Eastern shore of Mobile Bay. So, our next post should be from the Alabama/Florida border.
