All night we could hear clicking on the bottom of the boat. We heard it in Morehead City too. Some folks say it is shrimp, others say it is the oyster toad fish. Whatever it is, you can hear them feeding off the bottom of the boat. The water is calm and very peaceful this morning.
And then we hear some chirping. Not quite four and twenty black birds as in the nursery rhyme but black bird pie anyone? Lol
The sky this morning is beautiful.
The tide is high as we shove off the dock at 07:00 and motor back out into the channel
And here is our photos of today:
Lovely homes (built on pilings because of flooding)
Waves rolling in from the ocean
Who will get the fish first; the fisherman or the pelicans?
A marina with a great way to store small boats off the water

We pulled into Murrells Inlet and passed by a derelict boat and set the hook 15:45.
One other boat anchored and a derelict boat beyond them. No cell coverage tonight either. The weather is getting much warmer. It was a high of 26C today! Tonight is overcast and cloudy.
Today we travelled 49.14 nm.
