Almost Water Time


Friday March 6 was one of the nicest days that we have seen in a while.  The day started warm and stayed warm except for the breeze (wind) that kicked up early in the day.  Without the wind it would have been a wonderful day.

The water and the sky were blue as you can see from the picture taken looking east up the Intracoastal from South Water Street in Swansboro.  read more »

A great visit to the Maritime Museum


It must be obvious that we are getting stir crazy waiting for spring to arrive.  We are hitting all the great indoor spots before the spring weather pulls us outside.

Of all the indoor spots that I like to visit, the Maritime Museum in Beaufort is my favorite.  I have found it rarely crowded and always enjoyable.  It is also just the right size to spend an hour or so looking at exhibits.
