Headed North Again

Micky Capp, the owner of Capt. Hiram’s stopped by to see us off this morning. Nice of him to do that. The skies are full on Carolina Blue. There is some wind but manageable. We only have 12 miles to go today before reaching our camp spot.

The ICW in this section is very wide. Hardly any boat traffic out. We can see lots of opportunities to stop at convenience stores along this stretch. We don’t need anything but it’s good to know.

We arrive at Spoil Island BC38. It has a picnic table, pedestal grill, and a couple fire pits. Plenty of firewood too.

We get here in plenty of time to dry wet clothes out. Yes our clothes get wet despite the spray skirt. It’s the result of wave/wake action splashing onto the skirt then leaking in the cockpit while paddling. Nature of the beast.

Some locals show up at the island in a large cruiser. They fish and plan to picnic here. Otherwise the island is all ours.

Advance Around,

Jim and Marc

    Sounds like a lovely stop! Enjoy these great days and the rest of your journey. Just got back from a Paddlers’ Reunion in Memphis, TN; wish you 2guys could have been there…came from all over…Dave Cornthwaite from UK; Rod Wellington from Canada, Bill Nedderman from “off the grid” (he’s paddled over 36,000 miles, the triple crown hiking trails THREE TIMES, and more; Janet Sullens Moreland 3,800 miles source to sea Missouri; and many more noteworthy paddlers, but it was an awesome 2.5 days/nights. Yeah, I know, I was just lucky to be there in their midst. Check them out when you get a chance. You 2guys would have fit right there with them! Hugs, prayers & blessings as you PADDLE ON AND UP!
