Georgetown to Myrtle Beach via the Waccamaw

Another weather perfect day and Viridian, Dash Away and Second Wave cruise out of the Georgetown Landing Marina, SC and motor north on the Waccamaw River.  The palm trees and Spanish Moss are being replaced by hardwood, cypress and pine trees reminding us somewhat of the Tennessee River banks.  This massive river took us all the way from Georgetown to just south of Myrtle Beach, SC and was one of the most scenic routes we have been on if you like lazy winding rivers with very little sign of civilization along the way. 

The AICW departed the Waccamaw and continued parallel to the coast, through north Myrtle Beach and the "rock pile" to our destination of Myrtle Beach Yacht Club Marina.  Looper traffic was pretty thick on this leg of our journey and we traveled much of the way as a four boat flotilla all the way into the marina. 

Dockage here was only 1$/ft and there was a Wednesday night special dinner menu at the yacht club until 7:00 PM.  Before we could to eat we had to repair a clogged seacock using a coat hanger and a shop vac.  Once this was working again we all met at the restaurant by the marina and ordered the special.  It was spare ribs for me and fried cod for the first mate, and it was excellent!  A walk with friends around the lighthouse at the end of the harbor boardwalk as the sun set wound down this 60 mile passage as we make our way north to the Chesapeake Bay.

That's the news and here are some views:
