December 3, 2014  Day 12 South for Winter
Barefoot Marina
North Myrtle Beach, SC

We woke as planned at 0600 to be able to leave our anchorage at 0700.  We had not planned on waking to fog!  We waited until 10:00 thinking it was some better. However, as we entered Snow’s Cut, it had not improved. We continued on for 1 ½ hours in the fog including the Cape Fear River.  Our radar was not working much to our surprise. We suspect a loose wire which we will check out before we depart again. 

By 11:30 the fog lifted as we passed Southport, NC and Joyce felt more comfortable!  We had to watch for shallow water at the inlets but got through with no problems.  We had a good current with us and finally arrived at Barefoot Marina in North Myrtle beach at 5:00 just before sunset.

Our friends, Rick and Margi, on Journey, were here to greet us and help catch our lines.  Then they had us over for dinner on their boat.  We had a great evening catching up with them!

We will stay here for another day or two before continuing south again.
