Riding the Waves on Seahorse

Baby it’s cold outside

Beautiful morning, first one with blue skies all around. The only downside - 41 degrees! Quick breakfast and then left the dock at 7:30. Winds 15-20kts. out of NW and waves 1-2 ft.

As we entered Pamlico Sound the wind picked up to 35-40...

The parade continues

Up at 5:45 - light at 6:00. Made English muffins and coffee before we pulled the power cord. Ed made extra coffee and put into his thermos. Several of the boats we traveled with yesterday are leaving as well. We shoved off at 6:40am. It’s overcast and a...

I love a parade

Boo boo instead of just Boo - today Cara had to leave to catch a plane back to NPB. As she was waiting for her Uber to the airport (at 7:30) she got word that here plane was delayed and now wouldn’t get home until 4:45pm.

Before we took off...

Touring Norfolk, VA

Rained last night and we woke up to a cold and windy day. Had a leisurely breakfast of eggs and English muffins. After cleaning up, we bundled up and walked over to the Nauticus museum. This houses the battleship Missouri. Unfortunately the museum was...

Norfolk, VA

Up at 730. The nasty weather was predicted to arrive here after 1100 so we wanted to fuel up and then travel approximately 12 miles south to Waterside Marina which is just before mile 0 of the ICW. We left BlueWater around 1045 and arrived at Waterside 1330....

Best Laid Plans

Best laid plans to leave early we're thwarted by a head problem before we went to sleep last night. Although we had pumped out in Atlantic
City, 4 days ago, the system registered as full and we couldn't use the heads. So when we woke up this morning...

Easy Day

Up around 0700 and Tom and Cynthia tried out the new shower head Ed bought yesterday- it was 1000 percent better than the original - yeah! Ed was up making coffee and we had English muffins in the newly purchased toaster.

After checking the...

Layover Day

Last night we talked about going to St. Michaels after doing some laundry and shopping here (they provide a courtesy van). However Ed, having woken up at 0400 and realizing the hurricane in the Gulf was going to be around us later in the week and that the...

Baby it’s cold outside!

Woke up at 6:45 to light rain and weather that was cold and damp. Had some coffee and then left slip for fuel dock. Break Away ( a 42' Grand Banks next to us) backed down the basin to the fuel dock to see if we were ready to leave and we said yes - it was...

Atlantic City to Cape May

No hurry to wake up today since we were going to Cape May and wait for the tide on Sunday.  We had coffee and Ed made some delicious smoothies.  Of course the pump out outlet on the dock we were on didn't work so we needed to move over to another dock.  We...
