Waiting at Wrightsville Beach

  Sunday, November 3, 2013 / Brian / Uncategorized  

The southbound migration is in full swing on the Intracoastal Waterway, but Rode Trip is a sitting duck at Wrightsville Beach, NC. No, we haven't exactly fallen in love with the place. Yes, it is cold enough for us down south. We are waiting on weather; searching the GRIB files daily to find the forecast that will sail us out the Masonboro Inlet and right on down to Green Turtle Cay, Abacos, Bahamas. In the meantime, Wrightsville Beach not only offers a fabulous (free) dinghy dock but also offers delicious Mexican eats at Tower 7.

We're enjoying long walks on the beach while watching for the occasional surfer who catches a wave.

Lighthouse Beer and Wine is satisfying all of our last-minute micro-brew needs.

And we've found new, off the beaten path, routes to the nearest grocery store, Harris Teeter.

    Happy cruising! We will leave after the holidays....been watching the flock of boats go by us on the ICW everyday.....and am SO feeling the itch to get out of here before it gets too cold.
