On our way to Bull Creek anchorage in South Carolina

"Looping" in this little boat?
I haven't posted in many days. Not much to write about except lots of dolphins along the way--and they are very camera-shy. I haven't been able to get a good photo of any of them either.

But get a look at this very tiny sailboat that is doing the loop. Now this is camping on the water!

The Georgia portion of the ICW reminds us of the Chickahominy back home since it meanders back and forth. That makes sailing rather difficult.

After staying in Golden Isles Marina in St. Simons (and a great dinner at the Coastal Kitchen), we had anchored out in Georgia on two nights, first in the Wahoo River with only one other sailboat, and then alone in Redbird Creek.

Remember Sunday School?
Yesteday we got a slip at the attractive Isle of Hope Marina (just outside Savannah) because we planned to meet Bill Wessinger, one of Captain Pete's Sunday school friends from Columbia, SC. a "few" years ago. We hadn't seen Bill in 25 years or so--not because Pete had dropped out of Sunday school, but because Bill and Karen were living in Isle of Hope, just outside Savannah. We enjoyed catching up with Bill last night over docktails.

We just had a delightful walk around Isle of Hope by the waterfront. Lots of Southern mansions that have been backdrops in many movies because the streets look soooo Authentic South. I have never seen so many humongous live oaks in one place! The Spanish moss drops my blood pressure, so I'm now very mellow as we move north. Hope to stay near Daufuskie Island across from Hilton Head tonight.
