Heading north, we passed through Myrtle Beach. One can tell when you are at Myrtle Beach because there are golf courses along the waterway on one side and T-shirt shops and attractions like go carts and mini golf on the other side. I enjoyed passing this business that has a huge whale and many buoys on shore for sale.
The only hard part of cruising today is going through an area known as the "Rock Pile". The Rock Pile is a narrow area of the Intracoastal that was created by breaking through rock. The sides of the channel are lined with rocks that remind you to stay well within the channel. After being in Canada, one might think that we got more comfortable cruising above rocks We haven't.
Eventually, we cruised past Little River, South Carolina and crossed the border into North Carolina. We are almost home. We have stopped at Ocean Isle Marina for the night. It is a chillier day and the high is only 59 degrees but at least it is bright and sunny.
