Apologies for not writing sooner--hard to get back in the saddle again. Writing a blog is work! Tabie's wedding was beautiful, and I've never seen her happier. I was a bit nervous while performing the ceremony because she kept giving me the side eye. I guess she didn't completely trust that I wouldn't embarrass her … Continue reading We’re Baaaaaaack!
Here's a little chart my brother drew up summarizing our trip so far. It is highly accurate:

We passed by their popular maritime museum on our way to dinner, there were several good restaurants according to Yelp, and we were right downtown with access to everything. … Continue reading Beaufort, NC to RE Mayo docks
We left Wilmington yesterday morning, not really sure where we'd end up that night.

The cranes must've been shipped from China thru the Panama Canal all the … Continue reading Our First Anchorage!
