    We came in at high tide slack and had plenty of depth all the way in. Lots of dolphins greeted us as we cruised in. Dropped anchor in 21' water. There was zero breeze from arrival until we left an hour after high tide the next morning; thank goodness for the Thermacell to keep the no-see-ums at bay. For Georgia, the current was very mild and there were no wakes, we had the anchorage to ourselves. The shore by the trees looked accessible but without a dog we had no need to try. Pretty good Verizon cell service. A pretty sunset, dead quiet all night, and a gorgeous sunrise to start our next day's voyage.

    Anchored here night of Nov 25, 2019. Light wind, SW-NW; anchor is "Ultra" (sharp-tipped, spade type, no bale) held perfectly in mud bottom. We anchored on N side, close under stand of trees (100 yards W of "mystery light", below). Current is strong, but with suitable anchor, that's a plus: except at slack tide, current aligns boat with river/shore; unless wind from S, no risk of swinging into shore. Even in late Nov., some no-see'ums, but Cutter's repellent worked well. The "mystery light" is an white electric light on a post, such as one would place by front walk. Purpose & power source a mystery; no sign of dwelling. Perhaps a private nav aid?
    As to other ratings: We have no dog & didn't go ashore; looks like landing a challenge at high tide when beaches covered, with no docks & vegetation thick above tide line. No wake protection, but no wakes, either; one crabber went by as we arrived late in day. 3 bars on roof-mounted cellphone antenna. Zero civilization (except mystery light), pristine & beautiful.

    The anchorage has a line of trees to the north that offers some protection from a northern wind. The holding is good and there are two sandy beaches for landing a dog. One at high tide on the north shore and one a low tide farther east. There are beautiful sunsets here and no lights at night.

    Seems to be a light and beach on Wahoo Island, not sure if it's private.
