To Beaufort Docks, Beaufort, North Carolina
We left the lovely Mile Hammock Bay at eight, turned left and back on the ICW
Major Mecano Bridge
We were still on the Marine land of Camp Lejeune. The chap above couldn't have obeyed the warning........
We passed Spooner Creek. Thomas Millard married Eliza Spooner in Bear's family tree - a parsy area.
We saw the usual sights.
And a couple of different ones, including a house that looked like a posh shed and a university
Crossing Beaufort River Inlet was an event. So many small ships coming in from a day out at sea.
Saturday afternoon fun as we near Beaufort
Bear radioed in to the marina, very helpful dock masters helped Beez and us into a pretty slim slot at four o'clock, We fuelled up and Bear went off to log us in; he returned shortly clutching a couple of beer tokens for each of us to us in the dock side bar. Miles today 35.2. Total on ICW 714.18. Total miles 9792.5.
To finish the day we used our beer tokens at the bar and watched a local band - who really did perform on the veranda
ALL IN ALL A FULL DAY
