MM 614 Kilkenny Creek, Georgia
Lovely night, very protected from the North West wind, with high trees and deep water. We were so close to shore we could hear a dog bark. After high winds all day we needed a good night’s rest. The night was very cold, but we were snuggled all night with lots of blankets.
In the morning there was dew all over the deck and lanai windows; the good news is the sun was shining and it warmed up fast. The anchor was up at 8:15 and we were off for the day. More interesting twists and turns, range markers--quite a few markers gone, just not there anymore--markers there that are not on chart; an interesting day all around.
We traveled around the St. Catherine's Sound, Walberg Creek, Teakettle Creek (where we encountered shrimp boat and a large tug pushing a barge), on to Wahoo River, Buttermilk Sound and Frederick River. We did 52 miles today: we try to do at least 50 a day.
We pulled into Wally’s Leg Creek, anchor down around 3:30. We are getting quite good at the anchor dance--nice spot, we are so close to houses can actually hear a dog bark. There is a big line of trees to protect us from the north side, but open marshes all around. Fixed dinner and watched the most spectacular sunset we have seen--a beautiful turquoise sky with a low cloud to one side, changing to magenta, red and then rust; it lasted a long time. To bed at 8:30 after we did our homework for the next day.
