November 24, 2013  Day 10 South for the Winter
Osprey Marina  
Myrtle Beach, SC

Since we just had a three hour trip (not tour!) we waited until 10:30 to leave Barefoot Marina.   We left under a bright sunny sky and a very cold wind!  We practically had the ICW to ourselves.  We passed one sailboat and saw one motor yacht in the distance.  Everyone else stayed put today!  Even though it was windy we were fairly well protected on the narrow ICW that was lined with either trees or houses.  It was actually a beautiful trip.

We arrived at Osprey Marina and went into a slip.  When we went in the office to pay, we were given a nice gift bag filled with food and other gift items! What a nice treat!  We enjoyed being here early and having nothing to do.  Bill played Christmas songs on his banjo and also worked on his bird carvings.  Joyce wrapped Christmas presents. It was very relaxing!  We had dinner on board and then watched television and talked to friends and family on the phone.

We will get fuel here tomorrow when they open and then head south to an anchorage about 60 miles from here. That will be a long day!
