June 13

We made it to Oriental, NC…a lovely day after a frustrating mechanical delay in Morehead City.  After a long stretch on canal type cruising, we had the longest stretch in what seemed like Long Island Sound to us, but 12 ft debth max!  Pamlico Sound is a sailers haven most likely as it is large and deep enough.  We passed the most number of sail boaters today than previously.  The harbor is quaint , with a pool and great people running it.  The story is that a lot of folks came in their boats and decided to stay permanently! We dare say we did not “do town” but mainly because there wasn’t time to ready the boat and ourselves for the evening after arriving and settling by 6:00ish.  It was beastly hot and had to swim to chill a bit. The Marina had a wonderful band on the grounds so we thoroughly enjoyed their lifestyle for the evening!  

A CUTE FAMILY TIME ALONG THE WAY…it is Saturday!
