WAY too close for comfort, I hate running a boat with the air draft this close on the Ditch...
Another beautiful day today, nice NW breeze about 15 upon leaving Masonboro Inlet, went light around midday, then filled in very nicely from the SSW for the last 20 miles or so into Beaufort Inlet... Cold, but a spectacular day on one of my favorite legs outside along the coast - other than a couple of Navy ships maneuvering off Camp Lejeune, never saw another soul out there...
Fantastic dinner at Floyd's 1921 adjacent to Morehead City Yacht Basin, has to be one of the finest restaurants along the entire length of the ICW... HIGHLY recommended, a special place...
Floyds 1921 Restaurant and Catering | Morehead City, North Carolina
Tomorrow night, dinner will likely be peanut butter and jelly served at anchor in the black hole at the bottom of the Alligator River... (grin)
