Hanging out with shrimp boats

11 October 2013 | Oriental, NC
Quick motor down to ICW mile 182 this morning to arrive at the sailing capital of North Carolina...Oriental! We fueled up on some diesel and got situated in a slip at the Oriental Marina and Inn right across from a fleet of about 14, 80 foot shrimp boats. As you would imagine, the harbor breeze smells a little shrimpy! We walked into town for some groceries and then Brian went up the mast for a quick repair job on a radar reflector that came loose during the recent high winds. This was the first time that we had been to shore in 5 days and it felt great to stretch our legs. Hanna was especially happy to see grass! She likes to take naps on the bow and seems to be totally fine with boat life so far! We'll be on the way again tomorrow with Beaufort, NC as our next stop. More then!

When we first started cruising in late 2013, Hanna was almost 11 years old. It was perfect timing since she was [...]
