Wednesday, July 10, 2013 - Southport to Camp Le Jeune

We spent a few days at the lovely St. James Plantation - one of those days entirely due to an air conditioning problem.  This view is from our face dock looking out to the 'entry canal' to SJ Marina.   We had dinner one evening with Woodcraft friends, Rob and Judy Fenton!

SJ homes surrounding the marina.


Spirit Journey resting at the end of the dock.

St. James' Marina Buildings.  We enjoyed docktails on our last night with SJ's residents and Jack and Pat from the boat, "Another Chapter."

Left St. James on Tuesday morning...passed by "Sandy's"...

Amid calm waters but skies were darkening a bit. We managed to skirt virtually all rainfall.


In the Surf City area...




Passed by many 'inlets' to the North Atlantic Ocean.

Approaching a bridge...we missed one of the 'on the hour' openings so had to had to wait about 50 minutes for the next one...

Creative use of a palm tree!

Homes along this portion of the ICW were beautiful!


One of our faves...


I spy with my little eye...a giraffe?

Yes, a life-size giraffe in the waterway yard!



Hurray for the red, white & blue!

I spy with my little eye, a PINK house...with a fish painted on the side of it, and it's own little, PINK lighthouse!



God gave us a rainbow!

We traversed about 60 miles today and anchored in Mile Hammock Bay...right off the coast of Camp Lejeune.  Helicopters flew low overhead, and we were greeted by a 'welcoming committee' - local residents who were fishing nearby, Terri and Tom!
