After 586 nm we are in one of our favorite cities, Savannah, Georgia.  We need a few things on the boat serviced so decided to spend some time here where resources are much more available.  The nice thing about transiting the ICW this time of year is there is always room at the marinas.  Not many people are crazy enough to travel in this heat as they made the trek up north months ago.  While the ICW is very scenic, our favorite part so far was the trip from Osprey Marina in Myrtle Beach to Harborwalk Marina in Georgetown SC.  Wide spaces, deep channels and cypress tree lined waterway made for a relaxing and beautiful sail.  We already planned our north passage through there next spring.  Will definitely take advantage of the beautiful anchorages, intimate marinas and numerous fishing coves we saw.  

While traveling on the ocean we saw so much marine life and I knew that was something we were going to miss.  But low and behold we have seen a lot of dolphins along the way, small turtles and a family of sea otters eating crustaceans off the dock by our slip.   I’m still waiting to spot a bald eagle.  

We will stay in this area for the remainder of this week before slowly heading south to Brunswick, Georgia for the main part of hurricane season.  Not a bad place to hang for awhile.
