We have been somewhat out of touch for the last few days trying to sort out some basic problems we are having with unforeseen circumstances. Several have wondered why we haven't posted on the blog and I hope this sheds some light on the reasons for this lapse.
Coming up Winyah Bay to Georgetown last week in rough conditions wasn't easy or …

I handed him our lines to tie up and he acquainted us with the dock and yard, even offering a ride into town for provisions. Our car was parked nearby, so we weren't in need of his assistance, but found him to be always ready to lend a hand. He was there to cast off our lines, again, as we departed.
