Today we cruised mostly on the Neuse River and in making a turn on our route the waves and wind were creating a most uncomfortable ride. I likened it to a seriously lopsided galloping horse…..!! Thankfully that lasted only about an hour and soon we were in flat calm seas. Clouds and mild rain were also a part of the day. Now we are docked in Belhaven, NC.
Lunch was a short 1/2 block walk into town where we lunched and met with owner Teresa at her restaurant called Spoon River Artworks and Market. Very good and a nice compliment to our cruising day of 48 miles. It is raining now, but not storming. Teresa formerly was a baker and ran a bakery along with an interior design firm. A rather strange combination. She also did some set designs for the film industry in LA. After 5 years she said that was enough and then decided to open a wine shop and restaurant. She is a local gal whose husband has a flower farm where he grows and sells flower bulbs! This town has a population of around 1200. Makes you wonder what life stories the rest of the place has to tell!!!!
After the rain stops I am using my boat bike ( a fold up bike) to peddle to the local Walgreens for my eye drops prescription. We are planning two longer days of cruising starting tomorrow with a goal of getting to Norfolk, VA by Monday.
Have a good weekend everyone.
