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

Oct. 5 - Swansboro, NC

Caspers Marina

We were up early and had another long day on the water. We crossed the Neuse River and headed east on Adams Creek to Morehead City. There's a large inlet to the Atlantic Ocean near there and the area is full of large fishing boats, but all we saw today were small recreational boats darting around enjoying the beautiful day. This is our third time to come through this busy area on a Saturday, and it was a zoo. 

We've had three long days on the water so we decided to treat ourselves to a marina and dinner out. We've heard Swansboro was a quaint, friendly place to stop so we thought we'd check it out. After getting the boat secured and taking care of a few boat chores we relaxed on the deck watching the boats, the seagulls and the sunset. Later we walked over to the Icehouse Waterfront Restaurant for dinner. We sat in the bar and had a great meal and enjoyed visiting with the local residents. It was a very fun evening.
