Editor's Note: The ICW series of blog entries details the April 2010 cruise down the ICW made by WaterViewHome Network Publisher David Lott. The purpose of the trip is twofold: to accompany Captain Steve Weisbrod who is delivering a 43-foot Lagoon PowerCat from Lewis, DE, to Key West, FL, where it will become part of a charter fleet, and to visit golf and waterview communities and report on them. You can read all other posts by clicking on the headlines on the list of entries at the end of this installment.
Elegance, beautiful homes, beautiful boats--all within a stunning marina community. That easily sums up Windmill Harbour, the community I spent the morning with on our stay at Hilton Head Island. Its marina is protected by a lock system that keeps the stray visitor out and a calm safe refuge within.
After touring the clubhouse, I returned to Harbour Town and prepared to leave for our next port of call at Fernandina, FL.
