Join the Captain and I on our vessel, The Mon Ami, as we travel the Chesapeake Bay and beyond.

Traveling the ICW: Wrightsville Beach, NC to Charleston, SC

Wrightsville Beach to Myrtle Beach

_DSC2738LRIMG_1925LRWe finally left Wrightsville Beach on Tuesday, October 6th around 11:45 a.m., after five long days in port.  Before returning the rental car, we made a trip to Harris Teeter to stock up on supplies.  We were concerned about the flooding and debris in the water as we continued our journey south towards Myrtle Beach.  The Captain called the Coast Guard and all reports were positive, no major flooding, and no debris in the water from Wrightsville Beach to Myrtle Beach.  It was a cloudy, cold and  uneventful day on the water.  We arrived in Myrtle Beach at the Barefoot Marina about 4:00 p.m., got gas and our slip assignment.  The temperature never made it out of the 60s.  We went to the restaurant at the marina, Barefoot Boathouse, which featured sandwiches and burgers.  The food was very good, actually, only the portions were so huge.
IMG_1938LRI ate only half of that steak sandwich and a few fries.

October 1, 2015:  The weather was definitely not on our side on Thursday.  We went to the marina office at Seapath to watch the Weather channel. After viewing the forecast, we decided to wait out the low-pressure front. The front was producing heavy rains, combined with the potential impact from Hurricane Joaquin. We spent the previous night docked along the channel at the gas dock. The marina staff found us another spot inside the marina where the boat would be better protected in high winds and torrential rains.IMG_1821LRIMG_1819LR (more…)
