We spent 4 nights on a dock in Wadmalaw Island, SC.  The yard at Marine Propulsion belongs to our friend, Anthony Black.  The yard sits on a lovely creek overlooking beautiful marsh land.  In the morning, dolphins swim around the boat fishing for their breakfast.  Everyone at the yard was so helpful.  One of Anthony's employees helped fix our idling issue much to K.'s excitement!  Fiona and Jack schooled in the morning and played with all the critters running around. There's a never-ending assortment of dogs running around -- Nipper, Happy, Lily and a 2 month old chocolate lab puppy named Sadie.  Of course, I can't forget to mention yard mascot, Aflac -- a very noisy and hungry goose!  In the afternoon the kids usually got together with Anthony's kids.  Fiona and Grace are about the same age and are now fast friends.  We toured the Charleston Tea Plantation on our last day.  It's America's only tea garden.  Not only did we learn how tea is made, but that Wadmalaw Island is also home to bobcats and 4 different poisonous snakes!  

Thanks for the great memories, Anthony, Susie, Simon, Rachel, Diana, Grace, Alex, Josh, Maisey and Talluaha!
