Tuesday October 16, Beaufort!

We made the anchorage a lot quicker than plan with a favorable tide most of the day.  Our anchorage was well south of the traditional area just outside the city marina because there are so many private mooring balls.  We got in around 4 pm and made our phone calls then dinghied in to get a little walk around Main Street and  have a light dinner at Luther’s.  We also went pretty light on the drinks since we over-indulged a little at last night’s stop in Whiteside Creek.  That’s also a day that we missed an entire report.  I’ll see if I can get that up to day later today.

The  houses along the waterway were spectacular as were the first sights of Spanish Moss indicating we were well south now.  But the most spectacular sights were the dolphins near almost every inlet.  There were the smaller black variety and quite a few pods of the larger grey, very playful type.  They seemed to enjoy getting right along side the boat and keeping up with us to take a good look at the boat when they surfaced for air.  I got some video and I’ll try to add it later today also.
