December 7-9 2014  Days 16-18 South for Winter
Port Royal Landing Marina
Port Royal, SC

Sunday was a very windy, cold, and cloudy day. We traveled from our anchorage at Church Creek to Port Royal Landing Marina. We were grateful to have the strong wind behind us. The wind was blowing the Spanish moss sideways on the live oak trees. The current and wind were from the north so we docked into the wind on our port side. This is our second trip to Port Royal and it has one of the most helpful and friendly staff we have met.

We borrowed a courtesy car on Monday and stopped at the post office to mail Christmas packages, the hardware store, and Publix to do provisioning.  The wind damaged a bracket for our ladder so Bill made repairs to it Tuesday morning.  We also got a pump out, and got the boat ready to travel on Wednesday.

We will anchor in Breakfast Creek on the Vernon River with friends Tom and Meleisa on Journey. They are docked on Lady’s Island not far from here. We look forward to the potluck dinner we will share tomorrow night!  We will also celebrate another milestone as we will be in Georgia!
