Shopping Center (Supermarket)

Blackwater Creek

Mile 30

6 feet  of water at mouth of creek. Deeper water inside the creek. superb anchorage .  tricky entrance. Best water is halfway between the ICW Marker "46" (leave to port entering) and the tip of the point on the right side of the creek, which actually looks like an island of marsh grass. There were no stakes there this year.  After passing the "island" at the entrance, favor the right side for 6 ft depth.
