To Little River

The hourly Wrightsville Beach bridge is fortunately behind us as we leave for Little River. We parked with the boats just left of the bridge.

We had good weather most of the time from Wrightsville Beach NC to Little River SC, but it did get blustery for the last 10 miles or so. We stopped at Coquina Marina which shares the basin with Myrtle Beach Yacht Club where we’ve stayed in before. We’re stuck here until the Socaste swing bridge, 25 miles further south, is operational again. We’ve heard different stories about when that might open, but only know that it is not working yet.

Our relatively narrow way widened to 2 miles when we hit the main Cape Fear channel.

There are a few stores here that Sue wants to visit again, so we’ll have something to do tomorrow while we wait. There’s a tropical storm warning east of us out in the Atlantic and of course hurricane Michael down south that is supposed to pass just west of here soon so we are pretty uncertain of traveling weather in the immediate future.

A lot of both houses and condos have been built along the ICW in North and South Carolina.
