FL to CT Day 17
Murrells Inlet, SC to North Myrtle Beach, SC
We departed this morning earlier than we have the entire trip… at 0630 we were underway heading north on the Wacamaw River. We had a short day planned with the night’s destination being Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach, SC.
We had current on our nose the majority of day… and only making 6.5 knots max speed for a few minutes just past Bucksport Marina.
As we passed Osprey Marina we saw their diesel fuel was priced at $3.47 per gallon which is a really good price. We did not need any fuel or we would have stopped.
Saw a beautiful sailboat as we waited for the Socastee Bridge… wood hull, square sails… gorgeous vessel.
We arrived to Barefoot Landing Marina at approximately 1100 and we were securely docked at 1115. Our location for the night is N33°48.069’, W078°44.757’. We traveled for 4.75 hours covering 27.2 nm averaging 5.74 knots.
Susan will go to the store to pick up some supplies and I have some work to catch up on while we are here at Barefoot Landing.
