December 2, 2014  Day 11 South for Winter
At anchor
Carolina Beach, NC

Another long travel day as we continued south from Swansboro, NC. Sixty-six miles and four bridges concerned us at first, but we made it through with no problem.  One of the bridges had enough clearance at low tide that we were able to go under after Bill lowered our antennas.

We did see some skinny water and had to slow down and get through these shallow areas.

We saw several dolphins today which always pleases us.  We could finally see sections of the ocean in areas of the ICW that had inlets.  There were very few boats out today and we usually had the waterway to ourselves.

We arrived at our anchorage at Carolina Beach at 3:40.  We had dinner onboard, watched some television, and prepared for our trip tomorrow. We will go to Barefoot Marina in North Myrtle Beach, SC for two or three days.  We look forward to visiting Looper friends, Rick and Margi there.
