Migration

Starting to see more boats heading north on the ICW.

This little "flotilla" stopped at the Landing for a couple of nights. KJ

Yup, you passed right by me, (looking very cool I might add). I took the picture from my sundeck.

I got a shot of the last fella in the group.

Very fortunate timing on your part. The day before you got here, the wind was blowing at 45kts.

How far south did you go? KJ

Went as far as Jekyll Island...spent about 3 weeks hanging out in Isle of Hope Georgia (some time was spent working on renewing my CG license, TWIC and physical...plus waiting for a computer to be shipped)...but was a great spot anyhow to kill some time.

Was pinned to the dock in Georgetown during the blow (Hazzard Marine)...a sailboat came in the night before and only gave me a few feet to move forward or back. Spinging out of there would have been a treat even without them..just couldn't justify the chance if anything went wrong. So laundry and tax filing wre in order instead of a brisk day up the Waccamaw.

I haven't been at Barefoot since 2006 (2005 ?) and they were just installing the power posts when we left. I guess that means its not free anymore ?

Cool... I assume you mean the Paradise Cove. Met some friends of the people that are opening it back up at Toucan bar Saturday night... Friends of your friends I figure.

We may or may not be down that weekend. Just depends.

$1.50 / foot (electric included). No shoreside facilities, the docks were so-so condition, not a great deal but convenent walk to stores/restaurants...but really not provisioning.

Should be a $1.25 / foot based on the marinas I have been at for the last 3 months.

Can't remember the name...but it's a small marina on the right as you come into the creek.

Debbie and Scott...good people.

He's a big fisherman...has a nice 32' Blackfin named "Black Magic".

Looking at the slide show, it looks like you got there at noon. Enjoy your stay. Wish we were down and could take you out for drinks or supper. Let us know how Paradise cove is. We'd love to stop by over there this season.

Wow! I haven’t heard that expression for ages. When my son and I sailed on SF Bay I would say to him “that boat’s got a bone in her teeth”.

Yeah, the Rachael J was a sweet looking boat, but I was really interested in the boat after it, with the forward spar. It looked very Spartan but very capable.

I liked “La Familia” also.
I thought I saw Tony Soprano driving it.

Not much traffic today. It’s very stormy, but there are a few brave souls out there. KJ
