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.
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 later there was a great sunset to cap it all off.
