DAY 78 - HILTON HEAD TO BEAUFORT (25.8 mi.)

DAY 78 - HILTON HEAD TO PORT ROYAL LANDING MARINA, BEAUFORT (25.8 mi.) (Mi. 565 to Mi. 539)

Friday, July 21, 2017 ~ We spent the morning doing chores.  At 11:30 am we took the trolley to Seaport Beach on the Atlantic Ocean.  We talked along the warm waters of the very busy beach.    At 3:00 pm we left the dock and are underway.  Our first ten miles is a No Wake zone all along Hilton Head Island and we have two more patrolled wake zones.  When we left the dock we are only at a tide up of 2 feet.  The scenery that we see now is often underwater when we are at mid-tide.  

At 4:50 we are at the fuel docks of Port Royal Landing Marina, Beaufort.  The fuel docks are well marked - yellow pylons for diesel and orange pylons for gas.  We are at the same marina that we were at when we came down in 2011.  Frans and I both recognized the restaurant.

Shoals that you can see when the tide is up only 2 feet.
At high tide these would be covered by water.
