North & South Carolina – Fresh Shrimp, Great Weather, Docktails & a Funeral

Great Weather sceneryAll week we continued to have great weather for our travels through the Carolinas. This area is one of my favorites to experience. We stopped at old favorite places and found some new ones that drew us in. The boat is performing perfectly with no issues. We have continued to travel along at our 10 mph and around 50 miles per day.

I have always heard good things about Beaufort, SC and we happy that we decided to spend 2 nights there. The marina is right in their downtown district. It is dog friendly place even to serving a Pet Menu in one of the restaurants that we stopped in with the dogs. They let me know that it was “Yummy”. We were there for Easter Sunday and attended a sunrise service right by the marina. Afterwards Capt. Steve whipped up an Easter Brunch and my friend, Martha made her special Bloody Marys. It was a beautiful morning.  Easter Bloody Marys

Charleston is always worth 2 days and that is definitely to enjoy their fabulous restaurants. We had our fill of oysters and seafood in the short time that we were there. This is a mandatory stop. Our favorite place is Pearlz Oyster Bar, but found 2 others that ranked high, also.

Fresh ShrimpShrimp BoatsWe went off the beaten path and tied up in Georgetown for a night. We were excited to see the shrimp boats and bought 3 lbs of their “off the boat” shrimp.   This was another cute small town and walking around was very pleasant. Time spent there was short, but I liked it.

We had been waiting for Myrtle Beach to pull out our golf clubs again. The dock master let us use his car to get to the golf course. We all played well and I loved having the Red Tees set so far forward. This made me feel that I was really hitting my clubs far!   While we were there we had some waxing and cleaning done on the boat while we golfed. It was a productive stay! Read more
