(But we realize that we might not get much sympathy from many of you today given the US weather report)

We are currently south of Myrtle Beach, SC. We spent two nights at anchor at Wrightsville, NC. We don’t run our generator at night, which is what provides heat, so we run it until things are warmed up and then turn it off before we go to bed. We have 4 blankets on the bed and that works great until you turn your head on the pillow in the middle of the night and you hit the cold side! Wakes you up pretty quickly.

Last night we stayed at a marina in southern NC because Rick’s son Matt was coming home from being in Atlanta for 3 months. We wanted to see him before we headed south. Matt picked us up and we had a great seafood dinner in Calabash, NC, just down the road from the marina. Calabash is famous starting the NC fried food business. So, we had a great visit and lots of fried food.

Here are a few pictures of our trip down the Intercoastal Waterway.

We anchored in a beautiful spot off of the Waccamaw river. Tomorrow is supposed to be in the 70's. Hard to believe after the last two days.

I don't know about you...but this sure looks like a outhouse!
