Still, we had our storm and before the sun set we had some blue sky and all was well once again.
From Butler Island we motored up to Osprey Marina to get diesel and water along with seeing "sv Jasmine Ann". Roy is tearing up the main cabin of her and redoing a 100% remodel. We have now seen the "empty" bridge deck. Can't wait to see the finished end. For dinner we had to have our favorite "shot" and that consisted of two rounds of oyster shooters! They are the best!!! Oh yes, on the way to Osprey Marina we had to motor past our 1st "Drag Boat" race. Yes, the whole boating community was out in force. We didn't see Miss Budwieser though…..
|Heading into confusion|
|Bud Lite rules here!|
|There is going to be a lot of sunburn today!|
|Lots of noise ….not much speed|
|More "ford tough" men in boats|
Along with another sailboat, sv Wandering Star" we started back up the ICW towards Wrightsville Beach. We stopped for the night at Calabash (actually near Bird Island) and the next morning we motored out to go up the coast to Cape Fear and ride the tide up the Cape Fear River. We made excellent time and for once we got the weather and tides correct.
