Folly Beach - 2017
Jan 23 & Jan 24
This is our last blogpost from Folly Beach! We've enjoyed our time here while our boat was being re-powered. Now that the re-powering is complete we are anxious to be on our way down the ICW but we will be spending a couple days in Rockville SC before proceeding.

propeller. I'm sure it will improve performance under power.
I hope it is not like dragging a bucket while under sail!

Maggie arrived at Folly Beach at 10 AM. We spent the entire day moving. Since there was not much excitement to talk about today I thought it might be interesting to share something we have discovered while here in the Charleston area: Hatch chili peppers.
|This dip & spread was our first exposure|
to Hatch chili peppers.
Our second exposure to Hatch chili peppers was by purchasing a slice of Yancey's Fancy Cheese, cheddar with Hatch chili peppers.
|Yancey's Fancy cheddar cheese with Hatch chili peppers is|
very tasty. We found this at the Harris Teeter
grocery store along Folly Road.
From our perspective the Hatch chili peppers are not as spicy hot as jalapeño or habanero peppers but still have a zesty, smokey flavor. Hatch chili peppers were developed by New Mexico State University in 1894. They are grown in the Hatch Valley of New Mexico along the Rio Grande River.

We moved everything except the cats and their paraphernalia, a clean change of clothing, our computers, and cameras. We have to be completely out of our oceanfront apartment by 10 AM tomorrow morning.
