Kilkenny Creek to Jekyll Creek - 2017
Kilkenny Creek to North River
It was 38 degrees last night while at anchor! The very first thing I did in the morning was start our propane fireplace.
|Our propane fireplace was our only source of heat with the cold |
morning temperature of 38 degrees. I didn't run it during
the night while we slept because of safety concerns.
|We encountered this tug pushing a barge just after we got through a |
difficult area on the ICW. We had plenty of room
at this point, fortunately.
|This photo was taken looking into the marsh surrounding our |
anchorage in Kilkenny Creek. There were no signs
of civilization in any direction.
North River to Jekyll Creek
We had a difficult area at the very start of today's journey, the Little Mud River, followed by another difficult area, the Buttermilk Sound and northern reaches of the Mackey River--combined for a total of 12 miles. We left our anchorage in the North River at 8:30 AM so that we began the difficult areas a little before high tide (and on a rising tide).
|The F.J. Torras Causeway Bridge was visible over the marsh a long |
way before we went under it. This bridge connects
St. Simon's Island to Brunswick.
|This old ship was coming out the ship's channel from Brunswick |
as we were motoring toward our anchorage for the evening.
|This is the view we had from our anchorage at sunset. |
The bridge on the horizon is the Sidney Lanier
Bridge which spans the Brunswick River
at New Brunswick GA. This
bridge opened in 2003.
