Butler Island to Calabash Creek, anchor

This is a test.
Let me know what you think of the new map.

Sunset in Butler Creek
While there were some stiff winds today we had an added benefit that the tide was always with us. Our average speed all day was over 9 knots. Which was pretty exciting for us.

Weighing anchor around 8:30 in the morning we got back on the ICW and headed north. Unlike yesterday, a journey full of skinny waters and shoals, today was deep and easily navigable. Also, gone are the flat grasslands of the south. Gorgeous trees line the channel. This stretch is the loveliest of the ICW, most believe.

A pretty sailboat went by. But this was the 
best shot of it I could get.
Fridays are the start of busy boating weekends in these parts. The wind and the cool air kept some folks home but it was enough to motivate us to get were we want to go tomorrow as early as possible. We have reservations for a mooring ball. We hope to be there by noon.

Turtle on a rock. He's waving at us.

Went through a section called "The Rock Pile."
Not very wide and, as you guessed, bounded by rock.

Pretty waterways.
