Today's Pic

A short day with a lot of bridges...  that only open at specific times...  created a long day... that was capped off with a cluster f*#k.
A crazy night that ended with TowBoat US pulling us out of Casper's Marina at 0600 this AM. Aground at a marina and not the easy way. Swansboro, NC was not fun.
Our first time to use TowBoat and Captain Andrew was not only a good guy, he was very resourceful. 
Thankfully we put our heads together and devised a plan or we'd still be at Casper's and fused to the dock by now. The winds that kept us in the mud and up against that walkway of a dock have only gotten worse.

While we were running the boat in the comfort of the pilothouse, the weather changed. Unbeknownst to us, the wind switched direction and was blowing quite hard.
Istaboa's so stable we never noticed anything except the chop became small rollers.

Today's run to Morehead City was much less eventful. Looks like a neat little town and Morehead Yacht Basin appears to be equally as interesting. 

Thanks for checkin' in.
