10 November 2010 | The Atlantic
Diana/clear and cool and sunny
We spent two days in Beaufort and then took off into the Atlantic to "go outside" to our next destination - which is Wrightsville Beach. We could have continued on the ICW but the weather was picture perfect to jump out into the Atlantic. We had a fabulous run with two other sailboats and all pulled into Wrightsville Beach at about the same time. A great anchorage behind the beach in an inlet - lots of boats and tons of little dinghys being sailed by youngsters. These are 2 men boats that turn on a dime by easing sails and shifting weight. Lots of fun. These are common up and down the coast and are staples for teaching kids to sail. We all enjoyed the sunset and these kids weaving their ways between the anchored boats. The beach was developed in an old school way. Close to Myrtle Beach but not huge hotels and condos. Just lots of beach houses with people and dogs walking, strolling and running around.
