Out to Sea

Long day! We headed out of the North Edisto River at eight-thirty this morning into the Atlantic, and have just anchored at Georgetown at midnight. It was or intent to sail throughout the night, but we are making better time than expected, and calculated that we would be in the middle of a major shipping channel at two AM. So we opted feet an anchorage. Georgetown has a narrow channel, but is well marked so it is navigable after dark.  We made about eighty miles under sail today, and are half way to our destination. Tomorrow we press on.
