Steady wind and bright moonlit night gave way to a special sunrise (they are always so good at sea). Passing Frying Pan Shoals bouy and rounding Cape Fear in the early morning. Hove-to to make breakfast and wait for ebb tide to enter Cape Fear River after mid-day. Motor-sailed into the river entrance and up to investigate possible anchorages on the ICW - Pipe Line Ditch or Dutchman's Creek - neither any good for our draft!! So, back down the river and into Bald Head Island marina to shelter until Thurs/Fri northerlies blow out a little.
