Our first "real" sail - from Oriental to Ocracoke. It's a little over 40 miles....
Up early and shoved off the dock without even making breakfast!
Buddy on crab-pot look-out. It must be "season" for crab fishing since I don't remember so many before. Wouldn't be good to run over one of the buoys with the propeller!
A really nice sail in strong winds. I had planned to make chili while underway....but it was a little tossy-turvy....so we just snacked.
Always a ferry photo or two! In the channel approaching Ocracoke Island.
Always a welcome sight after 6 or 7 hours of sailing!
All tied up to the Ocracoke National Park Service dock on the windy day!
Miranda and Richard joined us - we're all in for a good mini-vacation!
Later that evening....all settled in with our folding bikes nearby.
