New Bern NC, Detour for Sea Ray's

 Short post today.

We biked around Oriental this morning then enjoyed an easy motor up the Neuse River on a warm, sunny afternoon to New Bern.

New Bern was a favorite stop on the trip north and crew change location. It's about a 21 nm diversion each way off the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW). We did it mostly to have dinner at Sea Ray's Cafe. Big plates of fried soft-shell crab, scallops, clams and fried okra. Very Southern. Very filling. Not so healthy, but tastes good.

Back to the ICW tomorrow to start making some serious miles for a few days. Looking at going "outside" on the ocean between Beaufort and Wrightsville Beach NC. The weather's looking good and it would give us a chance to visit Cape Lookout Bight, a really nice remote spot.
