Slow Progress But at Least We're Moving

Anchoring in the Intracoastal is certainly interesting. Two nights ago we anchored easily in Church Creek (SC) but at 3AM we could hear all kinds of noises from our anchor chain. The current and wind were pushing us in different directions and we think we were just hearing the links of the chain moving around.

Last night we ended up in a much more quiet spot in Bass Creek just off of Parrot Creek. We were up and moving at 7:30 this morning in order to take advantage of the currents and we are currently freezing our butts off! Right now we have little pellets of sleet all over our dodger.

So for your viewing pleasure here is a video of us rappelling Wilbur off the boat when we were in Charleston. Everything went very smoothly and a couple of employees gave us a hand. You can see that since they are so much taller than me Wilbur didn't have to stay suspended for very long.

We just passed Beaufort SC and hope to anchor in Skull Creek by mid afternoon. At that point we just want to get warm.

Wilbur is an excellent heating pad!

  1. Aw, that was so cute! Wilbur did great...Noah would have been barking and whining like a wuss! It was fun to hear your voice, too, Laura! :o)
