Here we are in Beaufort at the start of a Cape Lookout weekend. Life is good with a chance for some much needed relaxation. Some beautiful boats have come in and one looks like it was on the set of “The Great Gatsby.” Last night there was a Full Moon party at the Dockhouse and they had a really good band playing. We heard a few tunes and then went to bed but we then listened to them through the hull of the boat until about 1:00 AM. At least they were a great sound even if we’re two old decrepits who don’t have the energy for partying into the wee hours.
Helen had a mishap last night that bummed us out. She put Suzy’s baby stroller on the dock and locked the wheels before going into the boat for a minute to get something. When she came out the stroller was gone! Must have been a strong wind gust that just whisked it off the dock and into the drink. Helen really got bummed. Anyway, it was just a thing! It’s time to get on with living in the present.
This morning we head on out to lookout. Tomorrow I’m going to try to snag a few spanish mackeral if I’m lucky.
