Cape Romaine Wildlife Refuge
On Tuesday we had an intentional slow start out of Georgetown, after we had a long walk and bought fresh shrimp in town. (There are a lot of shrimpers calling Georgetown their homeport.) Then we picked up a weather report, and heard gale force winds being forecast. Not wanting to be at an iffy anchorage, we were lucky to pick up a phone signal, and made slip reservations in Charleston for Wednesday and Thursday.
Tuesday night we anchored in Awendaw Creek on a Wildlife Refuge. This night, no winds were forecast thankfully since marshes provide little protection. We saw tons of birds which our daughter in law Lisa could name for you, and had dolphins dipping off our stern for our cocktail hour entertainment. Peaceful night in a lovely location. We have just arrived in Charleston where it is 75 degrees!
