Day 10

Day 10: 
Georgetown SC 
50 Miles

Hey Guys! I must apologize again! Dad and I went to a piano bar last night and then we had a gathering on Happy Feet, it was a late night and I needed to get some shut eye...
So anyway, we hoisted anchor and set sail for another day on the water. We cruised by Alligator Creek, which is aptly named because we saw at least 5 alligators! About midday we came up on Georgetown SC and decided to dock for the night. We stayed at Harborwalk Marina, which paralles Front St. of the town. We went ashore and had a great lunch at Buzzer's Tavern and went on a tour with Swamp Fox Tours. The guide was very knowledgeable and definitely had done his homework. Along the tour we stopped and were able to walk around the first African Methodist Church of the town, which just h
appened to be Michelle Obama's Gradfather's church before they moved to Chicago. 
After the tour we went back to the boat and hung out for a little while and then went to a fantastic piano bar right next to where we had lunch: Dockhouse Tavern. I highly recommend it. They have a website: Please check it out. It backs right up to the water and every Saturday night they have a live piano player and singer: Becca Baxon. She is a bluesy-pop singer with a great repertoire and takes requests!  Definitely check this place out if you are ever near the area (Georgetown SC). 
After dinner and drinks we invited some people back to the boat and had some laughs and called it a night! Today we are cruising north and will anchor somewhere in North Carolina.
