A VERY long day

22 March 2012 | Cedar Creek, NC
Randy - mid-70's, partly cloudy
We traveled 86 nm in 13 hours, which I think is a record for this boat in the ICW. We managed to catch favorable tides most of the way. Could not leave Wrightsville Beach until 0730 because the bridge just north of us did not open until 0800.

I screwed up when taking on fuel in Charleston, SC - forgot to also take on fresh water. WTF?! A sure sign of getting older, I guess. I've run out of water before, but that was because there wasn't any available, not because I had shit for brains. Anyway, we ran out of water for showers and washing dishes the 20th. Wouldn't have been such a big deal except the marina I wanted to stop and take on fuel and water at yesterday closed before we could get there. Sooooooooo, we continued on north of Beaufort, NC, and headed for this anchorage. The current pushed us along at 8.5 kts, but as it was, we were in the dark the last 45 minutes and finding a place to anchor was, shall we say, "interesting", arriving at 2015. We stopped in Oriental for fuel and water this morning and I promised uncle Dave we will drop the hook no later than 1700 today so we can relax before dinner.

As of now, we are making great time and expect to be in Deltaville, VA (the end of the trip) the 26th or 27th.
