I gotz dem Red Fish Blues!
« on: February 15, 2017, 13:08:57 PM »



Headed on down to South Carolina, I had checked out the routes on Google but when I woke up Sunday morning I hit WAZE and typed in the address and started heading on down the road in the opposite direction from what I had seen the other day. Oh well I hadn’t been down to SC this way in a long time and I sure hoped that the roads where improved. I was operating on a couple of hours of sleep. We were out late the last night first to the new Craft Taco bar, then off to the new Wise Man brewery and finally off to The Garage where my old college buddy, Wezo, and his band were having a CD release party.

Poked around the creeks, weren’t real comfortable taking it up too far in shallow water and the wind was not helping us any. The visibility was nil, all the chop and wind had turned the water to the color of coffee with cream.

Resorted to gear to beat the wind.

We continued to explore around and then headed back to the ramp towards sunset.
Dinner and some beers then back to the campground. The wind blew pretty hard during the night, appeared to be calm at sunrise, but began gusting while we ate breakfast.

Good for you for making the effort.

Sounds like one of my redfish adventures . . .

Diggeth the second to the last tree pic.  I do wish some of our more eastern brethren would make an effort represent the low country.  So much goodness where the fresh meets the briny.
