IN ORIENTAL, NC ALL DAY
On this day 32 years ago we were married. We couldn’t wait till it was over so we could start our honeymoon, which involved white water canoeing on the Nantahala River in the Great Smoky Mountains, camping at the Mother Earth News compound nearby to learn about being self-sufficient, and touring The Biltmore. Our sense of adventure continues to this day. We were truly made for each other.
We spent this morning straightening the boat and addressing the engine issue. Still not 100% fixed but better, and it has not hampered our progress.
The rest of the day we went exploring Oriental on bikes the marina loaned to us. We checked out the waterfront and downtown area. Pretty dead on a Thursday. Stopped by The Bean and had ice cream and coffee, then asked the dragon in the pond to grant us a good voyage. My front tire went flat on the way back. Dinner, then some Netflix and bed. Neither of us could sleep in anticipation of going to Beaufort tomorrow.
