We waved goodbye in Beaufort happy to know everything was ok with the boat. It was a beautiful day and the ocean was almost flat so we decided to head out into the ocean to an anchorage in a small protected bay at the base of the Cape Lookout Lighthouse.
It really was beautiful there. We passed dolphins and schools of fish and went for a walk on the beach collecting shells. The boys were very disappointed that the lighthouse was closed and we couldn't climb to the top!
We ate rabbit food only for dinner much to Aaron's chagrin - even in the "trawler zone" of the anchorage, away from the sailboats, it didn't seem right to turn on the loud generator in the peaceful bay. Of course there was the awesome sunset to close a great day.
