Home to Saltayre

21 May 2017 | Home at Saltayre
Our last day, it would be short, and we would be home to Saltayre in the afternoon. We pulled up anchor, sailed back the 8 miles to Beaufort Inlet and started in, catching up with the ICW route at Morehead City. It was another lovely day as we motored up Adams Creek toward the Neuse River and Oriental. As we turned into the Neuse headed to the Bay River, passing Oriental and River Dunes, we began to feel nostalgia for this winter's adventure and all the ports we had visited. We laughed and joked about forgetting land and just heading north, perhaps Maine for the summer. It was exciting being almost home as we turned into the Bay River and view of Vandemere, NC our home port. As we motored slowly into Vandemere Creek with the dock in view, we knew another winter cruise had come to an end. We would spend a day unpacking and cleaning the boat, and drive back to St. Louis where our "other life" awaited. Joy is safely tucked away in her slip, with so much to do over the next few months as we prepare for November and next years travels.
