Welcome back! (A special welcome back from the Chesapeake Bay) (5/21/18)

[Note: This post is a transcript of a recoding of a rant by the Chesapeake Bay. Please note that there may be some salty language that may not be suitable for some of the reading audience.

Why are there so many boats?!?! Welcome to North Carolina (Part Deux) (5/11/18)

After the debacle yesterday we were hungering for something a bit better today. We got it. For a bit. Then came the swarm of boats. Continue reading “Why are there so many boats?!?! Welcome to North Carolina (Part Deux) (5/11/18)”

“Ain’t Boating Fun?” Welcome to North Carolina (Part one) (5/10/18)

We spend THREE HOURS trying to anchor our boat. THREE HOURS! While a lovely couple from Canada watches. And offers tips. Just shoot me. Continue reading ““Ain’t Boating Fun?” Welcome to North Carolina (Part one) (5/10/18)”

Bacon and Chocolate. Georgetown SC has everything we like. (5/7/18-5/9/18)

Georgetown SC is one of two places we have visited that were named after the King, not the President (the other being in the Bahamas). Both are hot and humid but totally worth the stop. Continue reading “Bacon and Chocolate. Georgetown SC has everything we like. (5/7/18-5/9/18)”
