DAY 85 - MYRTLE BEACH, SC TO TOPSAIL BEACH, NC
(79.2 Mi.) (Mi. 346 to Mi. 267)
Friday, July 28, 2017 ~ It was another late morning start, leaving the dock at 9:25 am with the tide up 1.5 feet. We cruised through a few tranquil man-made cuts, but three quarters of the cruise was at no wake with the shores lined with homes, docks and marinas. In these slow areas we only managed to go a distance of 10 miles in one hour. There are numerous inlets in this area with access to the Atlantic Ocean. All of these inlets had beautiful sand beaches with a lot of boats and people enjoying the water. After seven hours (4:20 pm) it was nice to pull into the Harbour Village Marina, Topsail Beach, North Carolina.
