The ICW in Georgia is a water maze filled with of sweet grass, dolphins, flying fish, sea birds and travelers. Neither of us had ever imagined what the waterway through GA would hold. On the chart it’s clearly a winding connection of rivers, creeks and inlets, navigating through it, you see it’s a beautiful and complex ecosystem that you never learned about in school. Georgia’s coast and intracoast have been a spectacular surprise.
After anchoring at the Ferry Dock on Sapelo Island on Saturday night, we left Sunday morning for a full (nearly 8 hour) day cruising to Savannah and arriving at the Isle of Hope Marina at the last spot on the dock.
Monday morning, we borrowed a car and explored Savannah. It’s an enchanting city filled with history and good food. All the same, we were happy to get back to Irene for some well needed rest after such a long Sunday. Now, we are planning the next leg of this journey that will take us from here and into South Carolina. The first day will be another long one. We will travel about 60 miles along the Intracoastal with the goal of finding a safe anchorage south of Charleston and blessings all around.
