May 15, Monday, ICW MM 264; Surf City
Surf City may have been a crazy, happening place at one time, but what we saw today was a beautiful, mostly empty beach with summer cottages along it. The fancier places were back away from the beach here, or on the rivers.
Early in the day we passed by a dredging operation on our section of the river. We are happy to see this since shoaling and going aground are constant issues for us boaters.
More nice homes and then low land wide open spaces…
A close up again of one the many nests we see on river markers
And then after a pretty long day on the water we found a wonderful anchorage within walking distance to the ocean! Dirk agreed to wrestle with the dingy and we found a small road (not driveway) that seemed to not be owned by anyone, beached the dingy and walked across the street to the ocean! Yea! I finally got to an ocean beach! And swam in it as well.
And a great sunset to cap it all off.
