November 25, 2013  Day 11 South for the Winter
At anchor
Near McClellanville, SC

We left our Osprey Marina slip at 8:00 and immediately pulled into the fuel dock.  The price was very good or we might have skipped it in the 28 degree temperature!

We ventured out into the Waccamaw River and were glad we had the current with us this year! We like going 10 mph at our normal rpm of 1300!  This is a winding, scenic river lined with cypress trees.   We did not take any pictures because it was too cold to open the windows on the fly bridge.

We saw very few boaters today and most of them seem to be driven by delivery captains who passed us in a hurry. We passed the entrance into Georgetown, SC about noon, but did not stop this year.  This is where we purchased Carried Away so we will go back again another time. It is a lovely, historic town.

We entered the ICW again and worked our way south in the narrow channel.  It is primarily lined with marshland win this area.

We chose an anchorage at Harbor River Inlet, near McClellanville and immediately saw our third dolphin of the day.  We had this spot to ourselves and spent a quiet night here.

Tomorrow we will go beyond Charleston without stopping this time. It is a marvelous city which we had visited many times but our schedule requires us to keep going. We also have a very rainy day forecast!
