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

June 3 - Brick, NJ

Metedeconk River - Anchorage

Today we woke up to cloudy, drizzly weather...a cold front is suppose to move through tonight. That's why we've had such windy weather lately. We're hoping the winds will subside enough on Tuesday afternoon for us to make the short run from the Manasquan Inlet, into the Atlantic and around the point at Sandy Hook. We moved the boat about 11 miles today to an anchorage close the Point Pleasant Canal that connects the Barnegat Bay with the Manasquan River. From our anchorage we are about five miles to the inlet we will take into the Atlantic Ocean as soon as the conditions seem favorable. It's a waiting game now. 

We never got a lot of rain, but it was a good day to relax on the boat and do a little research on places we'd like to see later this summer. After two very long days on the water it was a welcomed change to have time to unwind. 

Pictures of the storm clouds today. The looked worse than they really were.

Sea fog rolled in for awhile
A beautiful sunset was the reward for a cloudy day.
