Anchoring in Georgetown, SC

Date: 27 May 2012

We came into Georgetown, SC at around 1:00am and anchored. The next morning I noticed that there was a piece of metal sticking up out of the water about 100 yards from our boat! Philip didn’t tell me that there was a ship wreck near where we were anchoring. If I’d known I’d have never gone to sleep.

This is the story of the sinking of the sinking of the Harvest Moon.

And a picture of the model of the ship in the local maritime museum.

Georgetown is a very quaint, quiet town. The marina we are at does mostly high and dry storage for small fishing boats. That means the boats are stored on land and when the boat is needed it is lifted into the water. We are the only transient boaters here and have the, marina to ourselves after closing hours. The local boardwalk is beautiful.

There is a lovely boardwalk here that goes along the waterfront with interesting stores and restaurants. While we were out enjoying the town, we found out about the ship wreck that we anchored next to.

We are enjoying the advantages of being in a marina. We now have refrigeration for the first time in 5 months. Now that we can store leftovers, we have more variety to our meals. Also it’s truly a joy to be able to use as much water as I want.
