The Great Book Of Anchorages, Norfolk to Key West). With easterly winds and southerly swells, we had a bit of a rolly ride for the next hour and a half once we left the channel markers for Sisters Creek. The multitude of floats from the fish traps also made the short transit a challenge, but it wasn't too uncomfortable. We just needed to keep a sharp eye out and weave through the mine field. The channel entrance into Little Crawl Key requires going past the entrance between the two Keys and picking up the private markers 1 and 2 (Lat 24.44.2813N 080.58.2811W) that lead into the doglegged channel. It's apparent that the markers lead around and behind some very shallow water. The sand bar did knock down the seas quite a bit as we moved towards the entrance. Just past the last set of markers, a shoal extends out from each side of the entrance.
Curry Hammock State Park on the other. We shared the anchorage with another unoccupied boat, a handful of kayakers and some Spotted Rays.
Livingston dinghy is why we bought it. We found a nice spot right near the anchorage entrance to tie the dinghy up to a picnic table at the State Park. We wanted to walk around and explore the park and the facilities. There are a number of picnic tables under cover, restrooms, soft drink machines, a playground and a campsite for RVs and travel trailers. The entire park is very clean and well maintained.
