Beaufort to Wrightsville Beach, NC

December 5-15, 2004

On the way to Beaufort.  Linda toasting to her daughter Jennifer's birthday, anchored in the Alligator River

Beaufort harbor.  The yellow boat is from Sydney, Australia. We were anchored near them in Gloucester, MA this past September. 

View up Taylor Creek.  Carrot Island, on the right, is home to a herd of wild ponies.

Most of our first full day in Beaufort was spent with Mike onboard diagnosing our autohelm problem.  We all had a good time though.
