Cape Fear River

Myron likes the winds for leaving tomorrow, so we positioned to an anchorage closer to the Cape Fear Inlet.  This morning when the winds really kicked up at Wrightsville Beach, we thought we might just leave from there tomorrow.  Then we saw an little sailboat dragging past us.  It was unmanned and had been anchored near us all night, but the winds proved too much for its ground tackle.  Thankfully it did not hit us.  Thankfully it also caught on something other than our anchor and chain, when it came to a rest near us.  That sealed the deal and we waited for a slack in tide to pull anchorand head through Snow's Cut.

It is indeed pretty windy in this anchorage.  We had our doubts as we approached, but it is just as comfortable, or uncomfortable, as Wrightsville Beach and now we have the stress of that stretch of the ICW behind us.

We expect the seas to be lumpy.  It has been windy for several days.  It turned cold here last night with the north wind, so we are motivated to get south.

Love to all,
