A quiet day at the office

Apart from the dense fog early this morning, this has been a very quiet day. We left the Bucksport marina after the fog had dissipated around 8:00 a.m. headed for McClellanville less than 50 nm away.
At first, the weather was really nice. Blue sky, no wind and temperature in the low 50s. A the day progressed, clouds came in and the wind went up a little bit from the SW, but it never became uncomfortable.
We arrived in McClellanville quite early, around 3:15 p.m.. This is the first time that I stop here and I do not regret it. There is a floating dock and it is a very quiet and well protected place. Not much life though as all there is in this little town are shrimp boats. No shops, no restaurants, no bars. But we only need a quiet place for the night, we have everything we need on the boat.
Tomorrow, the weather calls for snow showers and chilly temperatures, so the plan is to go only as far as Charleston, spend the night there and then go out on Wednesday as the weather is supposed to be almost perfect for a sail down to Jacksonville.
Having a quiet evening in McClellanville, I posted a very few pictures on the photo album for Papy Jovial.
