Riding the Waves on Seahorse

Low country

Rained early this morning and was overcast when we left at 7:45am. Cynthia made Krusteaz cinnamon muffins for breakfast. As we traveled the sun came out and we were able to open the center window. We continue to see dolphins along the way.

Georgia is called the low country and it certainly is that. As you travel along this part ICW it is very winding. If there are boats ahead of you, you can actually see them in a distance a few curves ahead. It was actually helpful sometimes to know which way to turn.

Arrived at 1:31pm after traveling 62.42nm in 6hr. 13 min. averaging 10.04nm per hour.

The dock hand came right to boat to check you in. Ed found out that the laundry cost a flat $5.00 for wash & dry for as many loads as you needed to do. They also have bikes available on a first come first serve. Ed wasn’t able to do wash right away so we each rode a bike to the market just up the street. There is a nice bike path to follow right from the marina to the market. It is a nice market, similar to Carmines with some clothes and souvenirs, so we were able to get what we needed that should last us to the end of the trip.

Back to the boat to put away the groceries. Ed went up to do the laundry and Tom and Cynthia said that once he got it in we would ride the bikes some more. Unfortunately the skies looked ominous so we decided against it. Took bikes back and then back to boat. Ed rinsed off the boat and Tom listened to the Buffalo Bills football game.

Boats keep coming in (I’m glad we’re tied up) and the weather report for tomorrow doesn’t look great so Ed decided to stay another day. Hopefully we will be able to work our way down into Florida and home within the next day or so. We know we will encounter rain and wind from the tropical storm Eta, but hopefully it won’t be too bad. Time will tell.

Tom grilled the filets we bought in NY, Ed made great red smashed potatoes and Cynthia made a Caesar salad. It was a great meal.

Watched a little CNN and the weather channel before turning in.
