Going to a dinner party...

So we're quietly cruising down the ICW in North Carolina when we hear over the radio, "aCappella, aCappella - this is the Mary Kathryn, are you out there?" Well, this was a nice surprise - it was Bob Smith from the Annapolis area. So we switch channels, talk a bit, and yadda, yadda, yadda, he's anchoring in Belhaven too and invites us to dinner aboard his boat, kids included. Kids included! We object but he insists. This would be a first - Dyna and Dylan out to a dinner party aboard another boat at night - and a dinghy ride after dark. It doesn't get more exciting than this.

After anchoring in Belhaven, getting situated and cleaned up, we loaded up the dinghy and navigated to Mary Kathryn anchored nearby. Gail prepared a wonderful stuffed flounder and vegetable/jasmine rice. Dyna and Dylan enjoyed fresh ice and Charlie Bear treats. I have to honestly say that everyone behaved themselves. Dyna and Dylan too.

Notice the nice black-and-blue bruise on Karen's right thigh. That was awarded in Great Bridge when she walked into the bulwark door of the boat. It has been a spectacular array of colors changing each day like the leaves turning colors all around us.

Mary Kathryn just came through the bridge at Wrightville Beach (9AM opening). Looks like you're still in Belhaven? Safe journeys to you both.
