We've had a great couple of weeks and guess what.... We're going to tell you about it. So, grab a beverage and relax. We have a lot to tell you. First, take a look at our cruise map. Click on the following link to see it. Don't forget, you can zoom in or out for a more detailed view; and you can click on the little balloons to see the name of that day's destination. Enjoy, but don't forget to come back here and read the rest of the blog.
We met up with Sea Pearl at the Portsmouth (Norfolk) free dock. Joe and Julia had arrived earlier. We cruised together to Beaufort, NC. There, Joe and Julia visited Joe's mom and we had the boat bottom painted at Bock Marine. While being painted, we visited Rick and Lynnie.

When we last updated the blog, we were just leaving Bock Marine in Morehead City, NC. We had a lovely time visiting Rick and Lynnie Tierney (Richshaw) at their home near Raleigh, NC. They invited us to visit with them until Tide Hiker's bottom was repainted. And what a great visit that was. We had not seen Rick and Lynnie for a very long time and it was fun reconnecting and catching up. We also saw a couple of movies and did the unmentionables--yes we drug Vicki to a KFC one day and to an Indian Restaurant on another night and sub sandwiches on another day. Shhhhhh, don't tell anyone. Thanks guys for a great rest--it was wonderful spending time with you.
