Re: Heading south
We passed mile marker 200 and at the same time saw our first dolphins on the trip. We raced down the river with a following current to the turning basin in Beaufort, then, going up hill from there for about 3 hours we "raced" piles and were only just beating them. Never the less, we managed to cover 42 miles today. I was pooped and losing concentration as fast as the daylight went. So yours truly went aground for the first time in years about 5 minutes from wher I wanted to drop the hook. I managed to turn Tiki around facing the current, but was not able to drive her straight of the sand bar that I hit. It was on a rising tide and I could have just waited it out with the engine pointing the boat to deeper water. But what the heck, I have my own support vessel with me and Tessi has no need for water under her belly. So Linda came alongside, we tied the boats together and drove into deeper water, turned the corner and dropped the hook for the night.
