And filed under the category "small world," Dana and I ran into a sailing vessel with which we are quite familiar. While at a slip in River Dunes Marina in the middle of nowhere North Carolina, I was finishing a run and checking my pulse on the dock next to our boat, when a boat two down caught my eye. This 46 foot Beneteau reminded me of something, so I took a closer look.
Turns out this is the same exact sailboat Dana and I chartered for the week of our honeymoon in the US and British Virgin Islands back in 2008. How it ended up in North Carolina, and what happened to her Captain and his wife, I have no idea. But here's what it looked like the last time we ran into her.
WOA! Thank you for posting such a beautiful encounter. Happy sailing today. All well in Philly, phonebank last night for an Obamacare event.ReplyDelete
Loved this post! At first when I saw the cover photo, I was nervous that that wasn't your boat!! How serendipitous!ReplyDelete
Jeanette from Lithe told me about your trip and I'm just now checking in. Congrats on cutting the docklines and heading south! My husband and I did the same trip back in 2006 (ICW-Bahamas-Trinidad and back); now I'll live vicariously through you! Have fun! --KristenReplyDelete
Glad you're following along! Any tips you could give us along the way would be greatly appreciated, as we're newbies at this
We loved the marshes of Georgia, Fernandina Beach, best Key Lime Pie is in Lantana, FL at the restaurant right next to the anchorage (Do you have Skipper Bob's book of anchorages? Must have.) Hot rum toddies are great for an ICW nightcap. Besides that....high tail it to the Bahamas!ReplyDelete
Thanks! Can't wait for the key lime pie. That's Dana's favorite food! Probably should get our hands on the Skipper Bob books. We just learned about activecaptain.com which is an amazing resource for up to the minute user added anchorages, depths, etc.Delete
