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.

At high tide these would be covered by water.
