More New Places

After traveling up and down the ICW, it's easy to stay at the places you've been before.  It's comforting to know the tried and true, but we like variety so we're trying some new places.  Our habit after leaving Southport NC would be to stay in Wrightsville Beach and then make the long trek and many bridges to Rick and Lynnie's marina in Morehead City.  Instead, we stopped at the Harbor Village Marina past Wrightsville Beach and 2 bridges after Topsail Inlet.  We found this on Active Captain - Jeff and Karen have stayed here twice.  You have to call ahead - they don't monitor channel 16, so communication is by phone.  The only transient dockage they have is on the fuel dock - floating docks in a residential basin off the ICW.  Very nice!  Several of the Active Captain entries comment on the excellent Chinese Food delivery, so we're trying that tonight.  Tomorrow is a 65 mile run to Beaufort where we'll stay on the Beaufort Docks - another first.  The Big Rock marlin tounament is hosted in Morehead City this weekend, so we couldn't get into the Morehead Yacht Basin where we usually stay.  Should be fun to be in Beaufort where we'll be right downtown.
