Anchoring is more than just securing the boat in the water. Usually there is no one around and you become part of the land and water around you. Dolphins swim all around. Birds of all shapes and sizes fly over to check us and the boat out. A few landed and hitched a ride for a while. We stay up late and watch the moon rise and the stars. We sleep for a few hours and then wake up at 4 am - the magic hour. The dolphins show up to feed and play and frolic all around us. The sun starts to peek over the horizon and sends all the colors and brightness over the waters and land. The water is still and is waiting for the current to change. We watch and listen. I make coffee and oatmeal and we sit in the cockpit and we plan the days travel.

We are Isle of Hope marina, in a suburb of Savannah. Going on a bike ride to see the town. Beautiful weather. Going to be around 75F. Not bad for January.
