Our First Night

With limited energy, but with lots of enthusiasm, we moved the rest of our belongings onto the Bella Luna yesterday--and spent our "First Night" here in our slip of the past 7 months--the Coral Bay Marina, Morehead City, NC. We went to bed not knowing where any of our things were, bags and crates were everywhere, but after a full day today of unpacking and storing, it looks like we really might be able to "cast off" this Friday, May 9th for our real journey to begin! We feel it's important to spend a few nights here in the marina getting to know our "floating condominium" of the next year--where we have the convienience of our own car, know stores and shops, and know people who can "fix" things. And we just might think of something more that we REALLY might need to put on the boat! We hate to leave this wonderful marina--our "security blanket" is here in this spot--but both Louis and I are anxious to begin our Loop. Our AGLCA burgee is flying on the bow now, ropes and red balls and fenders are also hanging on the bow, and bicycles are on the flybridge. We feel we look like the Clampetts!! But Friday, hopefully, Belhaven here we come!
