This will go down as a day we will never forget......though somehow we wish we could.
We left Wrightsville at daybreak and headed down the ICW with our sights set for Calabash Creek. The ICW was quiet and we were a little bored with the thought of continuing the day on the ICW when we could grab a day or so off shore and get to Charleston or beyond.
Yes....we jumped out. We sent the essential notifications, packed the ditch bag, attached jack lines and pulled out our sospenders for our sea travel. We were at the entrance to the inlet or is that the exit to the inlet within moments and we took a deep breath and there we went. One thing about Cape Fear is that it has never been my favorite except for Bald Head Island and some dear friends there. The river itself and the inlet is a little rolly and rocky as they have the Frying Pan Shoals amongst others. I guess you would say the waters always seem confused. Anyhow, we are in it and we are heading out. We got about six or seven miles out and after taking wave after wave over the bow, we decided to retreat and turn around. It was not an easy decision as it would cost us a day, but it was a good decision for the entire crew.
So in we came back into the Cape Fear River playing a little "dodge the ferry and sailboat" on the way in. We called marinas along the ICW and decided to treat ourselves to St. James Marina for the night. Our first night in a marina and getting off the boat would be good for all of us.
As you can tell Jaxon is quite excited as are we. We had a wonderful dinner at the local restaurant and then settled in for the night with thoughts of heading to Bucksport tomorrow.
