Give Me a Tall Ship and a Star to Steer Her By.... and Wind, Don't Forget the Wind

We had another early day getting out of Georgetown, and the current was with us, so we were back out to sea in no time. The channel was a lot easier going in the light of day.

We had a mostly sunny day, save for one small rainstorm, but the winds weren't what they were yesterday. We motored a good portion of the day, but for the last two hours had an amazing sail. We put sixty miles behind us, and tied up in a nice little Carolina town named Little River. The people were most friendly, and the marina had a place for us to shower. Feeling greatly refreshed after that, we meet an old friend of the Waffler's, Mike Shaw. We did some catching up over some drinks and dinner at an amazing little restaurant called Clark's. My duck was delicious, and everybody else enjoyed their meal as well. We all had a good time. The bartender was most notable in that he asked me if I preferred my martini shaken or stirred (stirred of course)

Bob and I are winding up the day with a scotch and the weather report. Our course for tomorrow will greatly depend on the weather.
