Day Five- Oriental to New Bern

September 2014


Headed back to New Bern. It’s been an awesome time. We had a destination in mind and that was really it. Everything else just completely unfolded perfectly. So interesting what you see along the way. I will be headed back with an awesome camera and zoom lens. I just want to record everything. I’m thinking of taking up painting too. Travis laughed when I said that, it does seem a little unpractical heeled over on a sailboat with waves, but I’m not overly practical. 🙂
We were greeted at the docks of the marina by fellow boaters. Docking this beast forward in calm is no trouble, we did that in Oriental… well at least for Travis, I’ll handle the lines! But reverse is cumbersome. Sailboats do not drive like motorboats! But we got her backed in and had plenty of eager people to help out. Phew!
What a remarkable trip!
