its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Mar. 21 - Sapelo Island, GA


Duplin Creek - Anchorage

I know we've been through this area before, but I'm finding it very difficult to find any landmarks I remember. The reason could be...it all looks alike. The ICW meanders through rivers, creeks and sounds that are surrounded by the Low Country...marshy land with a few trees here and there. It's so flat that you can see boats miles and many bends in the river away. Stan says he remembers a few places, or least he thinks he does. Luckily it's mostly remote and there are few things we have to slow down for. We have seen quite a few boats heading north; in fact we passed some friends on another Monk this afternoon. Unfortunately I didn't realize it Mike and Barbara on Last Chance until they had past. It would have been nice to get a picture of them. Stan and Mike did visit on the radio for a few minutes. It's always fun to pass someone we know.

Our anchorage tonight is very quiet and well protected. We are close to the ferry landing on Sapelo Island. I believe there are several refuges and an estuary on the island. We read we could take the dinghy to the ferry landing and do a little exploring, but we arrived too late in the day to take advantage of that...maybe next time. We spent the evening enjoying the sunset, making pizza and relaxing.
