|The Golden Nugget Marina|
We made it! I got to say the Captain and I were not sure if traveling today was a good idea but we thought we would poke our nose out there and take a looksey. It really was not bad, well that bad, the worst was probably turning into the inlet for AC, we had been taking it on the nose all day but entering AC it was extremely beamy. Three boats left with us from Cape May and everyone is here safe and sound. We heard some chatter going on from a group of boats traveling the NJ ICW among them was OooPik, we traveled the Mississippi River, Ohio River, Cumberland and Tennessee River with Bruce and Karen but when we got to Demopolis he suffered a heart attack and went back to Canada for 3 months, we were so happy to hear from him and to hear he is alive and kickin. It sounds as though the group doing the inside route are comprised of mostly loopers (gold) from past years and as we listen to them along the way I know the captain is very happy he chose the Atlantic to travel. We will see what stories they have to tell when they get in here.
