a postcard from Hobucken
I received an email from one of my favorite small boat people, Dawn, showing her and Shawn, a great friend of small boats, with Dawn's new GCI sticker. How nice! Receiving the sticker, Dawn wrote "Guess I'm special too." Yes, she is.
Dawn, Shawn and Beth had just done a little kayak trip to visit some Algonquin oyster mounds on the river, bringing back a few shards of ancient pottery. No doubt I have sailed past those mounds many times, never knowing they were there. I'll have to get Shawn to point them out on the chart. It makes me wonder how much hidden history I pass by on every sailing trip to the sounds of North Carolina.
