We waited around for slack tied because of the swift current

To do the Cape Fear River that was a little deice and shallow  plus two large tankers passed us going the other way we were in the ICW part and they in the channel another tough ride was Carolina Beach State Park and Snows Cut Watching the depth gage all the time and fighting the Current. Carolina Beach Anchorage is were we stayed last fall and dragged in the middle of the night.  I was happy to pass it and head for Wrightsville beach that has a great anchorange but a little difficult to get to because of shoaling but we never saw anything lower than 6feet going in.   Lovely open area with about 8 other boats anchored, the only problem was small power boats on a Sunday afternoon buzzing all around but that stopped after the sun started to go down.  We had a quiet dinner and OK sunset (there were clouds on the Horizon) thought there might be some rain. Good quiet nights sleep, protection from the tall buildings along the Ocean side and houses on the ICW side there is also a good Marina there.Still  seeing dolphins.

Days end Wrightsville Beach, NC
