March 18, 2013 Day 311
Shelter Cove Marina
Hilton Head Island, SC
Total miles to date: 5252.1

We woke to rain and stayed at anchor off Bull Island until the rain stopped. Then we departed and headed for Hilton Head Island, only 10.6 miles away. It was nice to have a short ride today (thanks to our two previous longer days).

We arrived at 12:15 and then had crab cakes for lunch at Ela’s, a very nice restaurant on the second floor of the complex.  We went back to the boat and started major cleaning. Bill spent much of the afternoon cleaning the outside of the boat while Joyce worked on the inside!

Love the blue herons! Nice to be greeted!

Carried Away at Shelter Cove Marina
Our marina is part of a resort with condos, restaurants, and shops.  We have not had time yet to go exploring.  We will pick up a rental car tomorrow and see the whole island.  We look forward to having our daughter arrive on Thursday!
