We went offshore from Wrightsville Beach, NC to Beaufort, NC. A beautiful day on the Atlantic. Quite a change from the marker to marker navigation on the ICW. We came across a school of sharks in a feeding frenzy. Sharks up to 6 feet, maybe fifty or more. Some were below the school of baitfish, keeping them on the surface so that the others could feed. What a site. Unfortunately, we did not think of the camera, so no pictures.

Several times a week we stop to pick up supplies and feel the ground
again. Both Beaufort and Charleston South Carolina had streets lined
with historic homes and churches. Walking tours were great, as long
as they didn't take attention away from the wonderful things to be
discovered off the path.
The ICW in Georgia and South Carolina has led through beautiful
country. There are miles of Irish green salt marshes inhabited by
egrets, osprey, and heron. There are dolphin everywhere, often
swimming next to the boat. At times we have looked anxiously for a
motor problem, only to find that the strange coughing noises are
dolphin blowing at the stern.
