In August 2009 we anchored in Slade Cr. south and east of Becky Cr. in mid channel where the chart shows 7′ depths. Our Garmin GPS brought us through the Slade Cr. entrance with no problems. This is a very quiet undeveloped area with beautiful scenery. Holding was good. You can find wind protection from any direction. If you don’t have GPS, I think you could find the entrance to Slade Cr. from the ICW magenta line by following an imaginary line drawn between the house near Church Cr. (on your bow) with houses on Woodstock Point (on your stern). We peaked into the entrance of the 4 creeks on the NE and N side – Spellman, Wood, Neil & Becky. It’s possible to snuggle into the entrance of each for extra protection if it’s really nasty weather. We found depths to be as charted.
