Butler Island to Isle of Palms - 2016
Butler Island to Isle of Palms
|This was just before sunrise on the Waccamaw River in |
South Carolina. The colors were simply beautiful!
|There was a mist over Butler Island as we left our anchorage.|
|This is where our engine stopped, at day mark 42 (this photo looking |
back) in Jeremy Creek, after we cleared the shoaled areas.
As we were being towed, we saw a bald eagle sitting atop a day mark and a dolphin breaking the surface of the water in the ICW.
Isle of Palms: Oct 30 thru Oct 31
Knowing that our engine issue will take some time, we rented the slip at Isle of Palms Marina for the week (only $353, including electric). We cancelled our slip reservation at Beaufort SC for Monday.
Saturday morning after passing Georgetown, I noticed an (unusual) additional vibration and I thought it was something caught on our propeller. This must have been related to whatever froze up.
|S/V Rainy Days is on the face dock |
at Isle of Palms Marina.
|The slips shown here are connected to Wild Dunes Yacht Harbor. |
The homes are illuminated by the last light of the
day, just before sunset.
|These are some homes on the least expensive side |
of Palm Blvd--the more expensive homes are
between Palm Blvd and the ocean.
Since we will be in Isle of Palms for 4 weeks we will continue our blog posts every 3 or 4 days but there won't be much boating travel to report. We are kinda bummed out about our engine troubles but we are committed to make the best of it.
