Blazing through North Carolina

We’ve hooked up with a flotilla of sailboats transiting the North Carolina outer banks and sounds via the ICW, and we’re really putting the miles under the keel, so to say. Tomorrow’s goal is Oriental, North Carolina, which is rputed to be the state’s sailing capital.

The travelling here is way way way more dismal and swampy than the Great Dismal Swamp. Weird.

The sun is out, and it’s about 70 degreez this afternoon. We haven’t made it to a beach yet, and we dedcided to skip Kitty Hawk. If all goes well then next week we’ll be day siling on the ocean along South Carolina’s coast.

There is no cell phone signal out he, so our internet and phones don’t work. We has to come to a cafe on land to make this post. So, more will come when get back in cell phone range tomorrow or Sunday.

    Hey guys – Was great meeting you two in “the swamp”. Enjoyed your company and the burgers too. Too bad we missed you in Oriental – We ended up at the Oriental Marina right by the Bean.
    I finally made it back to AZ last night after Mike and I dropped “Sol Mates” off in Beaufort on Sunday.
    I did an Internet search for “Wee Happy” hoping I could find an email for you so I could send a couple of pics your way. Looks like I hit the jackpot. If you’ll send me your email address, I’ll mail you some that I took during the trip – One when you were moored in front of us waiting for the South Mills bridge, and another when we passed you before heading out into Pamlico Sound.
    Have a great trip – I’ll check in here from time to time to see how you’re doing.
