Day 20 Georgetown to Myrtle Beach, SC

 We departed the dock today at 0730.  We were the fourth boat to leave.  The first boat  departed at 0600.  I heard the diesels start.   We arrive at Barefoot Landing at North Myrtle Beach at 1345 (1:45PM) after traveling 52 miles many of which spent at minimum wake due to small fishing boats and no wake zones due to development.  Our destination was Barefoot Landing Marina.

 Before we arrived in the suburbs of Myrtle Beach, the waterways were typical low country,  Marshes, cypress trees and I am sure bugs.

Total miles to date 868.
The water is very dark like tea from the tannins leached from the trees and roots.  It is still salt water.

 Typical vegetation

Not many boats out today but the upcoming Memorial Day weekend will change that I am sure
 Ran into again my friend Jim Thompson on his trawler, Le Bateau.
Cable car across the waterway servicing a golf course I am told. Park on one side and the first tee is on the other side.
