DAY 84 - MCCLELLANVILLE TO MYRTLE BEACH (85.5 mi.) (Mi. 430 to Mi. 346)
Thursday, July 27, 2017 ~ We are up early waiting for the tide to come up. At 8:50 am we leave the dock with the tide up 2 feet. We cruise by sand dunes, salt marshes, beaches and forested areas. We enter the Waccamaw River were the water is the colour of dark tea at about mile 402. This winding stretch of water which continues to mile 375 is bordered by swamps, cypress trees and oaks dripped with Spanish moss. This is one of the most scenic areas on the ICW. Further north there are more residential areas with beautiful homes and landscaping as we get closer to Myrtle Beach. We pass at least a dozen golf courses along the channel. We arrive at the Myrtle Beach Yacht Club fuel dock at 3:20 pm. Our transient slip gives us access to the yacht club dining room which was a good choice for dinner.
