Beaches and sand then Marsh Harbor

Looking for a protected harbor?   Try Marsh Harbor….


Marsh Harbor provides very protected anchorage for North winds.   It is also known for having the largest grocery store in the area and is a good choice for reprovisioning.    There are several good marinas; the best option is to anchor in the harbor (free).   (joining several dozen other boats at anchor).


Sunday is a quiet day in town- all the shops are closed!

A short dinghy ride around the harbor brought us to another marina.     We walked along the beach road hoping to find a spot to access the beach and swim out to Mermaid Reef.    It is reported to be a great snorkel spot; but all we encountered were “No Trespassing “ and “Private Property” signs.   Maybe another day.

Monday morning was our day to provision.

There were already half a dozen dinghys at the city dinghy dock- and we met other boaters heading toward the trail to Maxwell’s.

Prices are a bit high, selection is great.  We passed on the $15.00 Pizza..

more- hope the size of the police station reflects the crime level…

On the walk back, we chatted with the local firemen.   The trucks were vintage but in good shape.    The firemen were ready for any pine fires that may erupt in the area.

Thanks for following- we are heading further south so more later.
