Almost there - by Geert

We motored north on the Intra Coastal Waterway to Savannah, where Dancker left to go home, and Tony came on board. Winds were fair in the beginning of the week, so we went offshore immedaiately. We reached Cape Fear in North Carolina after two clear, beautiful days at sea, accompanied by dolphins and, at night, an occasional shrimper. We are now in the resort and nature preserve of Bald Head Island. Tony and I are both running out of time. We have to get back to Washington. The plan is to leave 'Sea Scout' in North Carolina (Wilmington area.) I will come back next month or in the summer to sail the boat to its mooring in the Chesapeake Bay. It should be a lovely trip: offshore from Masonboro Inlet to Beaufort, up the Neuse and Pamilco rivers, through the Dismal Swamp Canal, and finally up the Chesapeake. Interested in sailing? Send me an email and we'll talk about dates and logistics.
