Sunset on Edwards Creek

Sunset on Edwards Creek

On Tuesday we sailed the 19-miles down to Gwynn Island on the South side of the Piankatank River inlet. Once into Milford Haven – the protected bay between the island and mainland – we headed up Edwards Creek to a secluded little anchorage.

For dinner, I ran the dinghy over to the one and only restaurant on Milford Haven, the Seabreeze. I got two dinners for carry-out (no outside seating, not dog friendly, and no bar). Some local Cod and grilled Scallops. Good, but not great food. Very friendly staff.

Edwards Creek is very protected from the North. Just where we wanted to be, because the weather forecast is for 35-knot winds to hit around 1 AM. And, just as predicted, about 1:30 AM, the winds started howling through our rigging. It got so cool we had to close our hatches and pull on the blanket.

Wednesday was a beautiful and cool day for enjoying the anchorage. There were still 25-knot winds and small craft advisories out on the bay. We were cozy on our boat, Annie got in several walks, and we grilled a couple steaks from Oxford for dinner. We also broke out some of the good Missouri wine, and enjoyed a beautiful sunset.
