Hurricane Ivan

Home Up

According to the cruising guide, Robert's Bayou was a "must do" anchorage.  The first clue that something was not quite as it should be was the green marker that was on the beach. The real proof was when we hit bottom really hard. I am continually amazed at Bob's quick thinking along with the driving skills that save us on these rare occasions. It was a definite go backward, hit bottom, go forward, hit bottom, go backward, etc., but he managed to pull us out. We headed back to Ingrams' Bayou and dropped the hook. Next day we dinghied back to Robert's Bayou and learned of the damage to boats seeking a safe haven during Hurricane Ivan.
