Brrrr......who said we should get up early and get fuel? It is Saturday and the Great Bridge schedule is pretty much on demand instead of remaining closed from 0630 to 0830 hours. So without the luxury of knowing we have two hours for folks NOT coming behind us and jamming up the fuel docks, we get to the fuel dock by 7:30 with just one other boat fueling at that time. The docks are all frosted as well as the cabin top of Ti Amo. Walking gingerly to get lines to the dockmaster we safely tie up and begin taking on fuel. 172 gallons of fuel and 3 gallon containers of water and we are of by 8:30.
We are heading for Broad Creek Extension at Camden Point. It is not too long of a day, but the scenery changes little with the narrow passages between the shorelines and then the vast open areas with houses in the distance. One of most folks favorite stops is the Coinjock Marina which is known for their prime rib. It is always fun to see the big yachts that stop in to indulge.
Jaxon is becoming the “scout” as he peers out of the cockpit. He is so funny but it is like he is taking it all in. His days start early with us and about 30 minutes after he rises he is back taking another quick nap while we drink our coffee. After that he knows we are upstairs and at the helm. That means he will need to spring into action as well......which usually means ......yes....another nap.
We are nearing our anchorage with the end of the Penn State game on the television, so while Greg catches the last of the game I meander back to our anchorage. There is only one other boat in the anchorage and while at first it seemed a bit hobby horse like, it calmed within thirty minutes making it a wonderful evening below.
Fire up the genset and turn that heat on! That is the first order of business and then to fix Greg and I a little snack while watching the Bama LSU game.
We make plans to head to Bel Air tomorrow with thoughts of anchorages a little closer if we don’t want to go all that way. It will be about 60 miles which will mean getting the anchor down as the sun goes down.
