Georgetown Landing Marina - at a dock

We're on an outside face dock, rather exposed but okay
We went through all the shallows of McClellanville at high tide. Boy, does that make things easier! Still, the least we saw was 5.1 MLW. We could have made it through at low tide with our 4' 9" keel although not on a drain tide of -0.6 ft like yesterday afternoon which is why we decided to anchor out at Awendaw for the night.

Fishing boats rule here
Normally we like to stay in town at the Dry Stack Marina which is more protected than this marina but they were full. One of the attractions of Georgetown is the fish market but from where we're at tonight, it's a long ways. This marina did have a loner bike which I took to get fresh fish. They had tuna! We've looked for fresh tuna all up and down the ICW and they had it here. Ann prepared it with a marinade and seared it 1.5 minutes per side, just enough to give a crust on the outside but not enough to spoil the inside by overcooking.

We'll leave Saturday morning for Barefoot Landing for two days. It's provisioning time for the rest of the trip and they provide a free service for trips to Walmart and I've promised Ann a dinner at Greg Norman's Australian Grill, our favorite restaurant on the ICW.
