CT to FL Day 31
McClellanville, SC to Fenwick Island, SC
We left McClellanville this morning at 0700... very gloomy and rainy morning... forecast was for rain all day.....

Surprisingly we had very little rain and the sun actually came out a little while just north of Charleston... but it was cold all day... left with temps in the upper 30's and it never got over 40° all day.

Had zero boat traffic today we were cruising all alone... did not even see any boats on AIS...

We arrived to our location for the night at Fenwick Island 1730 and were securely anchored in the Ashepoo River at 1745... N32°32.205', W080°25.224’. We traveled today for 10.75 hours covering 70.8 nautical miles averaging 6.6 knots.

CT to FL Day 30
North Myrtle Beach, SC to McClellanville, SC
Well.... we had no issues with docking overnight at Barefoot Landing docks... no middle of the night wake up knock on the door... earlier I did notice a security patrol in a golf cart stop beside us and take a photo... but we slept peacefully all night and were back underway at 0700.

Weather forecast was for rain today but lucky we saw very little and not very heavy rain... cloudy and COLD all day barely reaching 40° mid afternoon... so generator ran all day for heat in the boat...

We saw a bit of boat traffic today... couple of boats being delivered and we had one trawler behind us most of the day.... they stopped and anchored just south of Georgetown in Mimic Creek... they had spent the night on the barefoot landing docks on the opposite end form where we were.... so I don't think it's an issue staying overnight there.

We arrived to our location for the night at Leeland Marina at 1545 and were secure with power at 1600...N33°04.981', W079°27.752’. We traveled today for 9.0 hours covering 66.8 nautical miles averaging 7.4 knots.

CT to FL Day 29
Carolina Beach, NC to North Myrtle Beach, SC
Up early and away at 0700 to catch a favorable current down the Cape Fear River to Southport... current pushing us over 9 knots for most of the way to Southport…

Made the turn into the ICW at Southport and the brakes came on... 9.5 knots to 6.0 knots in just a few seconds... CRAZY! with the various inlets we passed we were up and down with speed... less that 6 knots and near 8 knots... overall it averages out but it sure feels good to be running along with the current boosting your speed.

Was pretty cold this morning when we left... 28°... Brrrrrr! We turned the generator on so we could have heat...

Not many boats out today at all... the last two days being the weekend must of been why were were seeing more boats... Did have one boat pass us that passed us yesterday... and they were moving fairly fast... planning hull so they should have been far ahead of today.... not behind us....

We made plans for tonight to go to the Alabama Theater and see the Christmas special so we needed to stop at Barefoot Landing... have not stopped here a few years... they revamped the docks to support small recreational boats and daytime use only... no overnight allowed... we'll see how it goes cause we are docking and spending the night....

We arrived to our location for the night at the Barefoot Landing at 1345 and were secure with NO power at 1400...N33°48.091', W078°44.691’. We traveled today for 7.0 hours covering 49.2 nautical miles averaging 7.0 knots.

Did not see any signs posted about "No Overnight" docking... we'll see how this works out... hopefully, we won't get kicked off in the middle of the night... but won't be the first time we have been kicked off a dock...
