Morehead City, Part II

November 24, 2006

We're still in Morehead City. We found a nice floating dock, free water and electric so we decided to hang around for a couple days extra. We'll leave tomorrow morning and anchor out tomorrow night and aim to be at Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina the following night. Ruppert and Dorrie had us over for Thanksgiving dinner last night which was excellent. They even made sausage stuffing. Good Brits! Ruppert carving up the Thanksgiving bird (chicken actually).

Today we biked over to the Maritime Museum in Beaufort which has lots of displays of Maritime history including displays on Coast Guard history, fishing in North Carolina, lighthouses and some treasures taken from Blackbeard's ship, "Revenge of the Queen Anne."
Some houses in Beaufort.

The owner of the dock is very kindly lending us his truck to run to the grocery store, so here are a couple pictures of the last few days.

The pelicans drift past our boat on the current. Kitkat stalks them along the deck but they take no notice (surprise surprise).

Hi Hans & Kristen!
We are in Charleston, SC living aboard Albin Vega "Lyra", and would love to meet up with you when you get down this way. We can show you around town, if you like, make a supermarket run, or just have dinner on us. Just give us a call or drop us a line!
We enjoy your blog - it's good to read about other folks on Vegas doing what we plan to do soon, especially people our age.

Fair winds,
