We left our anchorage in Minim Creek around 8:30am, the wind was blowing 15-25 but the forecast was good. We could easily make it 53 miles to Myrtle Beach today. Minim Creek anchorage is great only a few hundred yards off the ICW in a 12-20′ deep water, it’s very scenic. Leaving here heading north you go through the Esther Ville Minim Creek Canal then into Winyah Bay which takes you past the Georgetown Marinas. Then on to the Waccamaw River which takes you all the way to Myrtle Beach. Grande Dunes Marina is a very nice establishment with a good transient set up, the hotel blocks all wind from the north and east so it is a good ICW pullover directly off the trench. There is a Ruth Chris steak house right next to the dock. Tyler and Rebecca took a bus back to Charleston after helping clean up the boat, they were awesome company and help.
The foliage has really started to change as I leave the Low Country and get closer to the Outer Banks
Its like one big bayou cruise
