Myrtle Beach: Nighttime over the Intracoastal Waterway

I was in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for a few days last week.  Great weather and very good golf courses.  The area is bounded by the ocean and the land off the water has been recovered from swamp.  I had a good vantage point of a major canal, the Intracoastal Waterway, that is about a mile back from the beach and runs parallel to the ocean for a very long stretch.  At night, the sodium vapour lights provided most of the illumination and when mixed with stray Christmas lights and other types of lighting made for some interesting landscapes.

This boat, The Barefoot Princess 5,  looked like a half-hearted re-creation of an old sternwheeler – without the wheel. Designed for sightseeing, it has maximum seating but at the expense of a bit of character.  At night though it looked very nice with its blue lights and the street lights streaming through the decks.
