Myrtle Beach, Sc to Wrightsville Beach, NC

Leaving Myrtle Beach Yacht Club
Saturday, May 31, 2008 "Island Hopper" departed Myrtle Beach Yacht Club at 6:50 AM. We left early due to the falling tides. Winds were SW 10 - 20 with the temperatures in the mid 80's. We traveled on the outside for 2 1/2 hours for 45 miles and then went 35 miles on the inside. The outside was choppy and rough, but the inside was smooth traveling. We arrived at Wrightsville Yacht Club at 11:30 AM. We were glad to arrive early because we had laundry that we wanted to get done. After our boating chores we walked about 1 1/2 miles toward the beach. We soon realized that it was miles to the beach and we turned around and went back to the yacht club. We ate dinner at the restaurant next door called Bluewater. It was a beautiful day to relax. Tomorrow will be another early morning due to the bridge openings and the low tides.
Wrightsville Beach
Wrightsville Beach invites you to slip your shoes off and just enjoy the vacation atmosphere. Blow up a beach ball and taake a dip, and promise yourself you won't look at your watch all day.
