Wayne and Sailor coming back from walkie before sunrise.
underway with sunrise
Waiting for the Wrightsville Bridge to open at 7am.
On the ICW
The next bridge, Figure 8, opens on the hour also, so all of us were trying to make it. When the bridge tender saw us he called on the VHF radio and said keep coming he'd open the bridge. That saved us a half an hour of waiting. Traffic most of been slow this morning. It was nice of him to do that, not many do.
Figure 8 bridge
Coming up to Camp Lejeune, in the middle of the canal Onslow bridge that we had to wait for a opening. Wind and tide makes it interesting keeping boat straight. A Military helicopter were flying low, I missed the picture. :( You can hear the bombing and Sailor wasn't sure about that. He went and sat by his daddy.
Here that Pink House again, even the boat is pink in the back
We arrived approx 3pm at Dudley's Marina in Swansboro, NC. Of course it blows harder when your coming to dock. We are both on the outside dock. We fueled up and settled in. Wayne and I used the courtesy car to go grocery shopping at Lowe's 2 miles from here. We have to car for 1 hour. Came back and put that all away and started dinner.
So, we had my homemade chicken vegetable soup and garlic bread, salad and I bought chocolate eclairs. YUMMY
