December 8, 2013  Day 24     South for the Winter
At anchor
Kilkenny Creek, Georgia

We reluctantly said goodbye to Kathy and Paul this morning as they drove home. We had a great visit with them and hope to see them again in February.  We cast off our lines shortly after they left. 

We had about 56 miles to travel today to reach our chosen anchorage in Kilkenny Creek.  We traveled under an overcast sky all day but at least the seas were calm.  There was very little boat traffic out today as this is obviously off season.  We timed the trouble spots such as Hells Gate, perfectly at high tide and had plenty of water under us.  We did see several dolphins playing today. And we also spotted a bald eagle.

We arrived at our peaceful anchorage around 3:30 and have it to ourselves.  We had dinner on board, did lots of reading, and watched some television.  Tomorrow’s destination is St. Simons, Georgia, but we will anchor there also. Hopefully it will be warmer!
