We left the anchorage early. Of course that meant we hit the skinny, shoaled areas at low tide. We're so happy we have a shallow draft boat!
In the past we always docked in Georgetown. John of As You Wish mentioned anchoring there. That area is also very, very shallow. But just past the marina was a large pool, right in front of the not-in-use steel mill. Apparently that was where tows turned around coming and going to the mill. It was large enough that all of us (As You Wish, No Rush, and inQuest) could anchor there with room to spare.

The next day was longer for us. Russ has packages shipped to a friens in Southport, Robert Creech. They sprinkled in over the last few days. And we don't want to take advantage of his time and generosity, so we hustled north today. We'll see the them tomorrow morning.
But if you turn right instead and head toward the Atlantic there's a larger anchorage hiding behind an island. Probably not great in a big blow but should be dandy tonight.
