New and Improved......

We felt uneasy leaving Doug and Tammy, but they insisted we go because they are secure, have the parts coming in the mail and Doug has all the tools and knowledge to replace the alternator.  They also knew that we were on a schedule to catch a plane in Jacksonville, FL.  So, with their blessing, we departed Wrightsville Beach at first light. 

New and Improved.  Now see our course from Wrightsville Beach to Southport, NC.  It was just a short trip today.  We have been expecting heavy rains and winds this afternoon, so decided to call it a day when we got to Southport.  Here is the link.  Please give it a couple more seconds to download; and, don't forget to zoom out for a bigger picture.  Check it out and let us know what you think of this.


We were passed by this TRUMPY along the way.  What a beautiful boat.  Just look at the details of this old classic that has been updated with satellite TV and other amenities.

Crossing the Masonboro Inlet, we spotted this bait boat.  Quite different from the typical bait store.

We walked the town today and had lunch at Day Street Pizza and Deli.  Only OK.  We also picked up a few Christmas stocking stuffers.  Lots of choices in this tourist town.  We also visited the Maritime Museum and saw artifacts of the Andrea Dora and other sunken ships, a brief history of pirates in the Cafe Fear area and more.
