We made a leisurely exit with the assistance of the Dock Master and rounded the corner to wait for the Belhaven Draw Bridge’s 11:00 opening.
Even though today our travels were back in the ICW, sometimes we were in such a wide expanse of water that it was almost like being in the sea or a huge lake. However, at other times it was narrow and marshy. I captured these “oldster” fishing for their supper.
This afternoon the Quest took on a new job as office boardroom. Dick had to hook into an hour long conference call board meeting. Now we all know how difficult it can be to hear on a cell phone but just imagine trying to do so with 2 diesel engines roaring around you. With a little group imagination we managed to find ear phones for the phone and slow the engines down to a gentle roar and the meeting took place without a hitch.
We sighted Belhaven around 6:00 and Dan masterfully docked under some windy conditions. After a heavy duty tie up, hooking up water and power, showers, visits by neighboring boaters and paying our bill we headed for the fish restaurant in town. Unfortunately, no one told us that it closed at 8:00 and when we arrived at 8:03, they said no go. We walked the 5 or 6 blocks back to Quest and managed to scrounge up quite a tasty dinner then played a couple hands of cards before calling it a day.
