Meandering Through the Carolinas

We’re done with sea grass and mud-flats and have found nirvana – or, rather, serene waters wandering through glorious forests.

This part of the Carolinas is peaceful and magnificent…

….but, of course, that peace couldn’t last forever. As we approached the border between North and South Carolina, we found ourselves is a hornets’ nest of sea-doos and speed boats.

These people are NUTS! They zip back and forth, crossing directly in front of us or skimming alongside, just inches from Bushranger. Boyd has decided to consult with a few of his navy friends and see if he could acquire a  ‘50 cal machine gun’ or two.

He figures he can bolt them onto Bushranger’s deck and ‘deter’ a few of those sea-doos from doing anything silly…
…hmmmm, maybe not….

For now, Bushranger is safe and sound at Ocean Isle Marina in North Carolina (and, yes, that’s right – I said NORTH Carolina – woo-hoo!).

    Watch out for sharks while in North Carolina! Seem to be a lot of shark attacks lately.

    Tell Boyd to import a few “Box Jellyfish”, fling them a passing jetskis.
