"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

July 15 - Sneads Ferry, NC


Day 119 - Too Many Boats
Mile Hammock Bay - Anchorage

We traveled past many towns (Carolina Beach, Wrightsville, Surf City and Sneads Ferry) today with beautiful homes along the ICW and lots of boats. We were rocked several times by a few very large boats that don't seem to think they should slow down for others. We also past many inlets to the Atlantic Ocean today so the water has changed to a pretty greenish blue, replacing the tea colored water we have traveled in for so long.

We are anchored in Mile Hammock Bay just past Sneads Ferry. It’s a large dredged basin adjacent to Camp Lejeune. There were quite a few people on shore fishing and we were joined by one other boat in the anchorage. Since this is a military base we were not allowed to go ashore. Tonight is the full moon so we had a nice sunset and a beautiful moonrise. The temperature is supposed to be in the high 60s tonight so we should have a comfortable night.

Homes along the water
This is typical of what the scenery looked like today...very nice
Well...most of the homes were pretty!
Right down the road is the Atlantic Ocean...we were very close today
