The ICW was totally different from the last segment. We had to pass the Myrtle Beach area. Even though it was a weekday, it was still a vacation mecca. There were the usual charter tours, fishing boats and jet skis. One cute tourist attraction that we did see was a pirate ship. There was a jet ski making circles around it, which I thought was rude. But as we got closer, we could see that the jet skier had on a pirate scarf and was yelling at the boat. On each side of the boat, there were water cannons and a kid at each one trying to hit him. I thought that looked like fun.
We anchored by 4:00 in Calabash Creek. There weren’t many good anchorages north of here on the ICW. This area had a lot of crab pots and shoaling to work around, but it ended up being just fine. We weren’t very far off of the channel, which had a lot of charter fishing boats going in and out of this creek all day.
