The landscape started to change as we moved from South to North Carolina on April 19 with more development and fewer winding streams.
We passed the dramatic Grande Dunes Bridge as well as Tom Belchor's mom's house in Holden Beach. We chose to pass by Myrtle Beach to find a less developed area to stay for the night.
We stayed at a very protected marina called St. John's Plantation at the advice of a cruising couple we met from Maine (Roger and Ann). It was located in a very quiet nook right off of the intracoastal.
