September 26, 2015 – Saturday – Sugar Bay Anchorage to Ginger Bay Anchorage – 19.0 statutue miles traveled

Up anchor at 1100 hrs and easy travel through overcast, mist and occasional rain. Passed tows coming at us with wide margin as the channel in the lake is quite wide.

This was the first time we had towed the dinghy.  I had purchased the necessary material at the marine supply store at Green Turtle Bay and put the towing harness together yesterday afternoon.  All of the guess work as to length of tow line was right on and the dingy towed in a straight line with the bow on the second stern wake.  I figure when we are going from anchorage to anchorage this is a good thing to do so launching and retrieving the dinghy from the swim platform isn’t necessary and so the swim platform ladder is readily available should we want to swim.

Ginger Bay has several fingers and we anchored in the middle south finger in 10 feet of water toward the head. There was plenty of room for Namaste to anchor behind us. We explored the whole bay by dinghy and got out at a boat ramp for a short walk. Enjoyed the Herons and squirrels along the shoreline.

Chart hour aboard Sea To See with Namaste crew including Sammy. Dinner on our own and thus ended a lazy enjoyable day.
