Last days of preparations

The adventure begins. We woke up Thursday in Raleigh to splendid weather – sun shining from a clear blue sky and the first frost of the season glistening on the roofs; beautiful indeed, especially to a re-located Swede who occasionally misses cold and snow. But hopefully, that is all the winter we’ll experience this season.

We have stowed away the last load of perceived necessities and food cooked at home for the trip. Friday is logistics day – our car will live with Dick and Libby in New Bern while we are away. Thanks!

River Dunes has been our home port during fall 2012. This is a gorgeous resort just outside Oriental, NC and just off the ICW. It is a wonderful place to visit for a few days or a holiday weekend, whether you travel by boat or by car. Very nice pool, outside bar, club house and restaurant as well as workout and laundry facilities. Check out the guest cottages and the marina at
