Even though Southport is not a bustling town, the eager fishermen had the Quest swaying in their wakes as they left seeking fertile waters around 5:30 this morning. Even the sport fishing boats that were being delivered south were off just as the sun began to think of peaking above the horizon. We, however, enjoyed a leisure morning until 9:00 before starting our day’s travels. We have no need of the heater now and the skies, once again, were clear with the sun displaying his brilliance all day.

Today’s voyage took us past shrimp trawlers and kayakers in the Holden Beach area, offered us a view of the calm ocean through Shallotte Inlet and gave us great samples of the magnificent old oak trees that we are now amongst.
