Just west of the northbound entrance to the Intracoastal Waterway from the Charleston Harbor is a small creek. I call it John’s Creek, after a friend whose home overlooks it. It is only navigable at high tide, and then with a small, shallow-draft boat. I prefer to enjoy its beauty from the old Pitt Street Bridge. Recently, a “wandering” Idle Speed – No Wake Zone buoy found its way up the creek and into the marsh through which the creek flows. On a sunless sunrise morning, it added an element to a sunless sunrise pic.
