Off before sunrise and against a 2 knot current which switched in our favour later. Today was very sunny unlike yesterday’s rain, rain, and more rain when we went “outside” to avoid the inoperable bridge. Today took us by Charleston and then through d so some very desolate flatlands that reminded us of a waterery Saskatchewan. When we arrived at our anchorage it was too exposed for the winds forecast for tonight so we pressed on another 9 nm. We are now anchored in relative calm behind a few trees in a small creek.
