From the Cooper River behind Dafuskie Island to the Cumberland Dividings north of St Mary’s, the ICW is at its screwiest, excuse me, windiest. Here, too, tides range from six to nine feet depending on moon phase, and channel maintenance appears the most optional. Through this area there are five bridges between mainland and sea islands.
And so it goes. Sometimes currents run two to three knots – with and against. The next staging will be to get through Creighton Narrows on a rising tide so we can get past Little Mud River near high the next morning.
That’s why they call it wending ones way.
