Skull Creek is a nice marina - I spent a night there on the trip back to Maryland. Glad to see you and Linda arrived safe and sound.

Keep in touch, old friend,

Re: Heading south

We have a bike in Tiki and I have the van from the place I work for, so we are sortedout as far as transport goes. The van has a bunch of stickers in it that lets it in and out of the gates of the " plantations" as they call them here. For this month we are tied up at scull creek marina to find our bearings here on the island. Then we will either move over to the working dock at the place I will work at or get back out on the hook and get to shore with a run around boat and the dink.

Re: Heading south

Hey Michael,

Glad you guys are about to safely reach your destination! I really enjoyed your updates about the trip. Winter will hopefully be over soon here up north, and I'll be back in the water having my own adventures!

I found Hilton Head to be an odd place. I never really figured out what was "private" or public. Some places require a fee to enter a "resort area", but I guess I mostly meandered about the island without too much trouble. I did pick up an inexpensive bicycle from a rental shop which was getting rid of last season's inventory, so you might look into that if you are in the market for some cheap transportation.

I agree. My wife picked us up after a longish sail. I sat in the front passenger seat and kept hitting that imaginary break pedal. You know the one I mean. 40 mph was really fast.

Re: Heading south

Well the thing is that once it gets wet and ugly out, the camera tends to stay inside, so you only get to see pictures of the nicer times, or some when we did not go anywhere because it was ugly out there.

All in all, it was interesting and mostly fun. We used a 6 year old chart book and found a bunch of anchorages that where not noted as such. We only spent one night at a marina and basically lived on the hook and dinked into city docks when we needed stores and such. I have only set foot ashore 3 times during the whole trip and felt a bit lost when we went to wally world today and having to drive a van. Heck 30 mph feels quick after traveling for 2 month at no more then 7.

Thank you folks

Michael
