I got the pleasure of experiencing the wonderfully tacky Myrtle Beach. We stayed at the Barefoot Marina Resort, since there were no anchorages nearby. It was pretty nice, with a restaurant/bar called Dirty Don's, beach volleyball courts, a huge pool and hot tub, and laundry and showers, and the people were very friendly.
We participated in an oyster bake at Dirty Don's where we shucked our own oysters for the first time. Our waitress also brought us some oyster shots, which are alcoholic shots with raw oysters in them-another first!

This is the land of 1000 golf courses, and it's no joke, they're everywhere, along the water, off the main streets, people are even driving their golf carts on the streets with other cars!
We enjoyed their hot tub with our box of wine while Dexter stood guard, and stayed as far away from the water as his leash would let him. Unfortunately a very strange man came and joined us in the hot tub, he couldn't remember what kind of boat he had and anytime John would ask him a question he would just respond with "yeah, I can't complain", maybe he didn't hear the questions... Needless to say, we got outta there as soon as we could.
