Still overcast and chilly today, so I decided to head down the ICW instead of going outside. It’s been many years since I’ve done this section of the ditch. The biggest difference is all of the tall bridges that have replaced the draw bridges that could kill a schedule. A lot of federal stimulus money was put to good use here.
Don’t think I’ve ever done 10 hours continually at the helm. Truth be told, Julia usually is at the helm on these legs while I’m below working. It’s a good system that I miss. :). Anyway, I will never take her helm time for granted.
After a full day and a lot of great scenery, I deserved a break, so I pulled into Myrtle Beach Yacht Club, got a slip for the night, topped off the fuel and had a great meal at a restaurant next door.
And an even bigger treat — I used the yacht club’s wifi to download the last Pink Floyd LP, “The Endless River,” which was released today. Seemed apropos for this trip.
