"My wound is geography. It is also
my anchorage, my port of call."
- first line of the prologue from the Prince of Tides by Pat Conroy
I think the shopping is done. Got all the food I need, and probably more than I need (though I might add some of those tiny cheese rounds that come wrapped in wax), bought a new l.e.d. anchor (WalMart, under $10) and received my second book from Amazon, The Prince of Tides (the first book is Jan DeBlieu's Wind). Tides tables for Beaufort Inlet have been printed out. I do need to go online to get a NC saltwater fishing license.
About two weeks until I cast off, really ready to go as I've been following Curt's sail on Annie on the same waters I'll be sailing. Last I saw he was in Bath, Blackbeard's old hangout, a little town on a creek off the Pamlico River.
Thinking about his trip and my last couple of sails down there I dug out these photos from the Easy in the Islands 292 and The Inner Banks 425. Can't wait to get back down there.
