Wow, we've been in the US for 2 months and I already want to go back to the Caribbean. I like the US, but I prefer warm places and clear water. From Cape Fear we traveled up the ICW and went to numerous marinas, (I like quiet anchorages better than marinas) and even passed the largest naval base in the world. I thought the ICW was boring, lots of motoring, long days, and tiny, river-like canals. There were some fun places here and there though. One such place was Oriental, a small shrimping town in NC, which had very friendly people, and an awesome restaurant called M&M's. They had shrimp and excellent potato skins. Potato skins are potatoes stuffed with cheese, bacon, and spices. YUMMMMM! We went all the way to Deltaville and hauled out of the water. Dad did bottom paint while Remi and I did schoolwork and played with our friend Celia. We met her last time we were at Deltaville and couldn't wait to see her. After that we went offshore to Block Island, RI which took 2 days. When we were done exploring Block Island we went to Newport, which was fun. It was fun because there were lots shops, there even was a Panera, one of our favorite restaurants. It's a little cold for us, though. From Newport we went to some small 'town-less' coves before going back to the place we started from, a Brewers Marina in East Greenwich, RI. I'm looking forward to being able to go to an air conditioned mall. We picked up our car and are going house hunting before going cruising in New England.
To all kids who are out of school, HAVE A FUN SUMMER!!!!!
