We're Back in NC

06 May 2012 | Morehead City Yacht Basin
We departed Georgetown, SC around 5 pm Friday afternoon under clear skies and calm seas. Had a beautiful overnight sail with winds around 10-15 knots and seas 2-3 ft. SeaQuell performed very well thanks to recent work on the auto pilot. Both Robert and I had about 4 hours sleep and our watches were uneventful.

Saturday brought more nice weather, and a beautiful sail until around 7 pm, when the sh----- hit the fan! Severe thunderstorms rolled in-- we were about 20 miles off shore. The wind was a steady 35 knots and the lightning was very intense! Rained super hard too!! These storms persisted until around 5 am. Needless to say, very little sleep was had by ether of us-- maybe an hour in tiny nano-naps.

Maggie was an absolute nervous wreck--- we thought at one point she was going to jump overboard--- we finally put her inside and tied her in her bed with her leash.

Thanks to Robert's skill and the good Lord's blessing we made it safely to Morehead City around 7 am today.

We have done very little-- managed to shower and fix dinner, but we have spent a good deal of time dozing. Maggie is content to be at the dock. She too has slept most of the day.

Planning a little TV and early bedtime.. Once again, mother nature showed us who's boss and the Nordstrom's are pooped.

Hoping to stay here the rest of this week, having dinner with friends in the area a couple of nights. Plan return to Bath/Little Washington this weekend if weather permits.
