“Ain’t Boating Fun?” Welcome to North Carolina (Part one) (5/10/18)

We spend THREE HOURS trying to anchor our boat. THREE HOURS! While a lovely couple from Canada watches. And offers tips. Just shoot me. Continue reading ““Ain’t Boating Fun?” Welcome to North Carolina (Part one) (5/10/18)”

Bacon and Chocolate. Georgetown SC has everything we like. (5/7/18-5/9/18)

Georgetown SC is one of two places we have visited that were named after the King, not the President (the other being in the Bahamas). Both are hot and humid but totally worth the stop. Continue reading “Bacon and Chocolate. Georgetown SC has everything we like. (5/7/18-5/9/18)”

A tale of two islands (4/26/18-4/27/18)

We like islands; they are some of the favorite places on our trip. Over two days we got to compare/contrast two different barrier islands in Georgia. One we loved and its on the ‘places to return’ list. The other notsomuch. Continue reading “A tale of two islands (4/26/18-4/27/18)”

Ocean? No problem. Dock? Scares the berjabbers out of us (4/27/18)

The plan for today is to head out into the Big Bad Atlantic (BBA), scoot up 40ish miles and cut off a bunch of the ziggy-zaggy stuff. But first we have to get off the dock. Continue reading “Ocean? No problem. Dock? Scares the berjabbers out of us (4/27/18)”
