Why Deltaville? Deltaville is the current home of our friends on s/v Dream Catcher that was one of our buddy boats on our first trip across the Gulf Stream to Bimini last year. In addition, our friends on s/v Sea Salt that we have been traveling north with also met Dream Catcher and Pearl in Bimini so this was a nice reunion of good cruising friends.
Where have we been the last 2 1/2 weeks?...Travelling north going about 60 miles a day. Since the Intracoastal Waterway does not travel in a straight line, those distances are spend meandering our way back and forth northward. After leaving Port Royal, S.C. we stopped at:
St. Johns, S.C.
Santee River, S.C.
Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Wrightsville Beach, N.C.
Moorehead City, N.C.
Alligator River, N.C.
Dismal Swamp, N.C.
Whoa ... I'm exhausted just typing all that!
The most memorable stop along the way was Myrtle Beach, S.C. because we had the chance to be reunited with my mother's sister, Aunt Gloria at my cousin's restaurant. We won't admit how many decades it has been since our families had gotten together because we would really feel old but ignoring that it was so nice to reunite and catch up on what everyone has been doing with their lives. If you ever get to Myrtle Beach be sure to visit my cousin's restaurant, Castano's Italian Steakhouse. The food and atmosphere is amazing. You won't regret it!
We were very happy to see Aunt Gloria
