And what did you do last summer? It’s a scene repeated many times, in many places over the years -  back at school, back from a summer at the beach or in the mountains. Time to catch up. In the case of boaters the agenda is the same and different. Where did you go? Maine for one; Canada for the other. Have a good time? A grand time was had by all. Then it comes time to kill a bottle of wine while swapping sea stories, comparing notes about ports, places and experiences with the all important chronicling of breakdowns & disasters at sea, major and minor.

Really no different for cruisers than other folks. In this case made all the more special because it was a chance encounter. Our paths intersected at the Pungo Creek anchorage and may not again for a long time.
