Out of all the MANY wonderful anchorages off the AICW section of the Waccamaw River, I think Thoroughfare Creek may be my very favorite. Looks like Captain Koerner found this spot equally delightful.
Spent the day under power in a drizzling rain. This was my last chance to find an anchorage before nightfall. It was beautiful to me then, in the rain, and remains so in my memory. One sailing catamaran was there when I arrived, and a trawler arrived just after I set the hook. My Bruce anchor dragged, so I changed to a CQR. No problem. It was probably due to fluky conditions, though, as wind and current were at odds when I arrived. Didn’t get a good set to start with.
