North Myrtle Beach SC, SM 354 to Georgetown SC, SM 405

Oasis is on her way for another stretch of her journey and the captain is very pleased. The crew surely appreciates the clear blue skies and calm waters but the weather is chilly. On this first day of the voyage the captain and first mate had to wear their long johns, tuque and gloves but even though the weather was cold, they enjoyed the scenery very much. In the afternoon, it warmed up a bit and it was more comfortable navigating. The captain docked Oasis at Hazzard's Marina in Georgetown at 4:00 p.m. and afterward, the Captain and First Mate went sightseeing around town.
