it seems that we don't meet some interesting boat people when on the water. This weekend we took a short trip to Bath NC and moored at the State dock...Sunday morning a gentleman stopped by who lives 2 weeks out of the month on his homebuilt 34' sailboat at the adjacent marina. The other 2 weeks he heads to Charlotte to care for his 95 year old mother. He brought us Blueberries! We had a fascinating chat..
A bunch of Dolphins frolic'd around our boat when anchored out in Bath creek Sat. afternoon.
On the way home Sunday we helped tow in a homebuilt 20 ft 2 masted skiff who had run out of wind. He built it out of Oak and Mahogany. He and his daughter were 3 miles from the ramp and rowing! He's thinking of moving from NH, and I had some local info on job opportunities in his Pharmaceutical specialty.
Later, back in Washington we met Captain Jeff who runs the 85' "Belle of Washington"
dinner cruise boat and helps out on the Jeanie B (a 72' steel schooner berthed right next to us) on the weekends. http://www.jeanieb.com/
. Always fun to see the people that come for a 2 hour sailing tour of the upper Pamlico. Then an older gentleman passing through on a Pilgrim 40 from Texas stopped by to chat. There was a nice Selene out of Florida docked for the weekend too..
Always interesting, always fun. We've met a lot of nice people now that we're back on the water...
Heron at the State dock in Bath:
The Admiral, keeping an eye on me! ( I do need constant supervision!)
This retirement thing seems to be working out...
We moor right next to the Jeanie B..
