Cruisin' The Ditch
The past several days have been mostly uneventful. The sights are lovely and we've spotted many dolphins since North Carolina. We've been mostly confined to the boat since the weather has been windy and cold. Most nights we anchor and some nights we've been lucky enough to dock. Docking is great! We get to hook up to power and take on water, so on those nights we get TV and long showers! Our best stop by far was Thanksgiving night in North Myrtle Beach. We docked at the Barefoot Landing Marina which is part of a touristy shopping center. The very nice dock master loaned me his car so I could go grocery shopping. We had Thanksgiving dinner at the House of Blues -- a funky restaurant near the marina. Not a bad buffet considering they had been serving people all day including hundreds of homeless people at lunch time. They also delivered dinner to area shelters. If you ever have a chance to patronize one of the many House of Blues Restaurants (there are 13), please do.
This morning we awoke to the most beautiful day. It is finally sunny and 65°! We took time to stroll the boardwalk before getting a late start. We picked up a passenger just before departure. As Fiona unhooked us from shore power, she spotted a lizard, caught him and brought him on board. Current Morning Star pet populations: 3.
