Redbird Creek Anchorage, GA

Jonny started the day, on Friday, May 4, swabbing the dew that accumulated on the decks at our anchorage.

Afterwards, he was able to finally raise and secure our new dinghy on the davit system that we’ve had and never used for several years.

Our day included a beautiful low country cruise on a clear and temperate day with no humidity. Passing miles of marshlands, we saw dolphins, jumping fish and lots of bird life.  We made our way up the notorious Mud River, one of the shallowest passages on the ICW. The only signs of civilization were a few fisherman and the very occasional boat that passed by. 

We traveled all day leaving at 8 a.m. and arriving at our anchorage at 4.  We found an isolated spot off of the Ogeechee River on Redbird Creek. Lynn tried her hand at setting the anchor but it was too challenging due to opposing winds and currents which didn’t allow the anchor line to tighten easily. So Jonny took over and Lynn will keep working on this skill,

After a nice relaxing nap and reading session, we had cocktails and nibbles on the fly bridge followed by leftovers for dinner on the aft deck. By this time, the sun had set and tiny gnats were beginning to appear and it was time to retire to the saloon.
