I had a nice run to Oriental at 4-4.5 knots. Turned west around the breakwater at 0930 and tied up at the Town Dock. The town was closed for the most part on Monday but the weather was beautiful, everything spring green and deep blue skies. I walked about, took a few pictures and cast off about 1300. Sailed south across the Neuse River toward Adams Creek and the ICW cut. The wind died and I motored down the ditch until anchoring up Broad Creek around 1600. Set up the cockpit tent and cooked chinese noodles, black beans and a Campari (no ice!).
