The long-overdue (and possibly temporary) post to fill in the last two missing months of cruising. Pardon the much-too-lengthy post.
Days 56 – 84, December 9, 2018 – January 6, 2019
The last post was St. Augustine, which seems a lifetime ago. An update is long overdue. I would still like to complete detailed posts for each segment of our trip, and I may attempt to do that at a later date, but for now, I simply want to fill in the blanks to bring this record up to date. To that end, I will use a broad-brush to simply document our path and the places we have visited.

Our daily runs seem to be from contrast-to-contrast, as this one was from remote and quiet, cool and clear off-season Edisto Beach to the lively, Christmassy, touristy — and wet-rainy — town of BEW-fərt.South Carolina. Not to be confused with BOW-fərt, North Carolina.
Day 47 – 49, November 30 – December 2
Edisto presented us with yet another lovely morning, a clear and crisp fall day with no wind. The sunrise was breathtaking: such a treat to be up early to enjoy it. Continue reading BEW-fərt not BOW-fərt→
