2016-04-19 On the Move–Well Not Yet–Myrtle Beach SC

Okay, this article will have nothing to do with actually being on the move, it will simply try and catch up on the happenings since we have been standing still!!!


First and foremost we have enjoyed just being still and looking around us. The scenic beauty and the kind and friendly people have really made Osprey Marina a terrific stop. We nromally kept busy on boat chores mid week and took advantage of special weekend rates for rental cars. Every weekend I was picked up by a different driver. Most are retired gentlemen who moved to Myrtle Beach and wanted a part time job. I have enjoyed hearing each every story how they got here. The latest was the author of “The Boogeyman of Baltimore”, John F Riddick. Mr Riddick was a Baltimore Homicide Detective. I have not read YET but will report out


Nothing particularly striking from the above picture, just my view one afternoon from the “Man Cave.” Life is not so bad…



The section of the marina where we were moored is a bit out of the way so there was a golf cart available to run back and forth.


The best part, okay in my opinion was all the projects we got knocked out. Annette was tied to the sewing machine for 3 days taking care of a myriad of little jobs but the big one was shore power cable covers. We purchased a new set which use the newer Smart Connector. I will be writing next month about this new connection type.


We really did complete all of our stand-down maintenance with the exception of a couple if contractor required activities as well has a teak varnish and deck wax. Both of which I will get done in Maryland.


Another great thing about being stationary is that we had a number of sailing friends pass through this popular marina. Yes that’s ice cream…we are a wild gang!


Kindred Spirit came through and well maybe there is a trend here….


This is the view from our Happy Hour Porch. It was always fun to see which boat was going to come in next. The Trumpy above is owned by Greta Van Susteren. She of course was not board but a very handsome vessel none the less.


Our whole spring plan was based making sure we were at Annette’s nephew Byron and Alex’s wedding in Virginia. The location “forced” us to go right past our favorite Virginia Winery, Barboursville Winery. The winery and countryside is absolutely beautiful.


But then it was time to move onto the main event and sharing the special day with with Byron and Alex.


And yes here is a picture of your particular interpret cruisers in our NOT cruiser uniforms.


After a terrific weekend away it was great to finish it up with Happy Hour on our now familiar Happy Hour Porch. We will be getting underway in the AM so buckle up, its time to get moving!
