Let's those of us confined to jobs and family responsibilities share in the joys of cruising. My boat is across the way in Pecan Grove, but as I'm prepping to sell a house, my weekends have been spent painting and cleaning. Add Christmas and family, and zero boat time has been had in 6 weeks.

Sorry if it feels like stalking. It's more like pining.

Great restaurants in Beaufort/Morehead when you get there. Beaufort Grocery, Floyds, Ruddy Duck all favorites. We cruise there all the time.

Cheapest diesel in Sneads Ferry. Pretty cheap at Jarrett Bay too. Don't fuel near Wrightsville Beach, very expensive.

That's the right one!! Shake it good! I still add a little texas pete and lime, but that's just me!!

Hope you are enjoying M&Ms, sit at the bar for the "real" Oriental. Don't miss Silo's. And of course, say hi to Donna at the Tucan Bar!

Happy Holidays!

** oh oh...the consignment store is fun, but if you need any real parts, Deaton's has a whole parts supply shop.

left Oriental and heavy fog this morning so we are a little behind schedule. Currently cruising down Bogue Sound. A pod of dolphins came up and checked us out.

We saw you tied up as we went by. Take big care at 60-61A-61. It looks like a slalom course and it is.

We are anchored at Mike Hammock Bay at mm 244. Beautiful spot with the deepest water we've seen since leaving the Neuse River.

At the very nice Southport Marina so I can catch up on some work. Neat town but since Super Wally World showed up shopping for provisions is hard as the local stores can't compete and closed or moved close to WW. This year we celebrate Christmas in Southport and head back down the ICW Friday. Some nice boats here. Photos soon as the marina is closed for the next two days so we can nose around.

Ft Pierce this year...have friends with boats/condo there...

Trying to be in Canaveral for the Jan 23 Atlas launch.

Have to be back in Jersey Apr 15th for the towing job...so it kinda limits total time and how much driving vs enjoying I want to do. Was stationed in Miami 2 tours and back regularly up till the late 90's...that's the one part of Florida I can skip and not feel bad about it.

When I fully retire. the Keys and mid to northern Bahamas are in my sights until I can go to Cuba.

It would be great if bridges all had unlimited clearance.

We have a Bruce and a CQR. We usually use the CQR as it holds nicely in muddy bottoms. Each has 200 feet of chain.

This year as far as Stuart where we will leave the boat in April. We're going to work our way down starting with a week or two in St Augustine. Friends live by Ft Pierce so I think we're planning on a month there.

Walking around a marina that's closed for Christmas really lets you poke around. Here's a shot of an N55 for the Nordie folks. Believe it or not it is only an N55.
