Re: Heading south

Well we just dropped the hook in Hampton and were greeted by a pelican that came over to the boat to give us a good looking at. Jeepers looked back at him, probably thinking " what a strange duck that is. Boats are rafted up, the hook is set well and now after 6 hours of squinting into the sun its time to put the feet up, put some music on and have a drink.

Re: Heading south

Michael,

Ya, you and that pelican are way late. It would have been a much more pleasant journey south 2 months ago. Glad you made it down the bay ok. The lower bay can be a rough place this time of year. What's your final destination?

Re: Heading south

The goal is Hilton head ( S/C )as I have a bit of work lined up there for the winter. After that.... who knows.

Re: Heading south

Funny, I spent January at Shelter Cove Marina in Hilton Head on my way south about 5 years ago. Nice enough place, although the bath house was a bit of a hike from my slip. After visiting Hilton head, Charleston and Savannah, Charleston would be my choice to spend the winter in that area.

Re: Heading south
