Mark, I hope you tipped your hat to Moon River as you passed.

Savannah was the home of Johnny Mercer. You will be going near his grave at Bonaventure Cemetery as you pass Thunderbolt. The cemetery is between the two bridges. On the marble slab over his grave is engraved "and the Angels sang", and his wife's "you must have been a beautiful baby".

Just a little trivia as you move along.

Mark, watch for shoaling on the north end of Fields Cut. The last I heard was to favor the reds. Take it slowly.

Keep an eye out in case they're strand-feeders. I've seen them do it in the Kiawah River and heard there are a few rivers in GA where it happens. Really a spectacular sight.

Man! This is a terrific thread! I know absolutely nothing about this part of the country but feel like I'm on the boat! Thanks, Daddyo!

I've had the same feeling about FlyWright's gang in the Delta. (Sorry Mark, Craig, Ray, Jennifer, but it was Al that introduced me to the Delta.)

There's probably going to be a measurable impact on workplace productivity this month if other people are spending time at the office following this thread as intently as I am.

Daddyo-in the 80's we used to cruise often between Little River, SC and Hilton Head. It was not unusual at all to see dolphins in the ICW at the points where a river crosses. My favorite used to be around the Santee, north of Charleston, every time we went through, there would always be a ton of dolphins in the ICW.

Keep on keepin' on, a great trip!

Mark did you have any shallow water in Ramshorn Creek especially near the entrance at #9 (I think)?

Looks like Daufuskie Island.
