"It's all about the people"

MM564 Hilton Head, Harbor Town Marina

Everything was soaked when we woke up--the lines were soaked, we had to use the windshield wipers to mop down the enclosure (we will hereafter refer to it as the lanai--sounds better.)  We left the dock at 8:20 gave Harmony some fuel and we were off at 8:30. 

First obstacle of the day was Rams Horn Creek--narrow, about 1 1/2 miles long. The good news was we were at high tide, much easier than Sunday. We made the Savannah river and encountered some big container ships  for a little while, the Skidaway Bridge, Moon River, Burnside River to name a few. On the Ageechee River and the Vernon River we encountered heavy winds up to 35 knots, taking spray over the bow but (thank you, Lord) no rain. 

We arrived at our designated anchorage at 3PM, Kilkenny Creek, doing 50 miles today. We watched to sun go down; I baked cookies and pork tenderloin, and some dessert.  The reason for the bake was to warm up the cabin--it was as low as 38 degrees last night. 

We managed to get a computer connection; do not always have any, or phone bars. Received the picture from Brenda of us in Charleston, did our homework (planning the next day and where we will be going) and went to bed at 8:30 PM.
