"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you
didn't do, than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away
from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.

Explore. Dream. Discover."

-Mark Twain

St. James, N.C.

This morning we awoke to rain, with the promise of more throughout the day, and the occasional thunderstorm.  Since there was no reason to get moving on the water, we had a very lazy morning, afternoon and evening.  It was a good day to curl up with a book, or watch TV.  During a lull in the raindrops, we did get out and take a walk. The forecast for tomorrow is more of the same, so we may be here another day.  The marina is pretty nice, they have an on site restaurant, a small grocery section in the marine store and plenty of people coming and going.  Not a bad place to be held up.
 Here are some of the dredging rigs that we saw as we walked along the river today.

Hi Mary & Jim, Sounds like your weather is what we are experiencing here. Cool, rainy, gray both yesterday and today (Tuesday). Loved your previous blog and pics. Seems like no matter where you go, you meet the nicest folks. I'm certain that is part of the fun of your trip! Here's hoping for better weather tomorrow, both there and here....
