Always Home at Greg and Kates

...Team Selfie Beaufort NC...
Our first visit with Greg and Kate was in 2008 when we were moving the boat from Vero Beach Florida to Block Island RI and involved in Drexel's Online Graduate School at the same time. I first met Greg via our Island Packet Yachts email server and discussion list. Greg and Kate previously owned IP350 Ei'lean and now cruise in a serious land yacht, a 40 foot Tiffin Motor Coach, to far flung places such as The Yukon and Alaska.

Now 7 years later and many visits north and south we count this stop, along the ICW, as one of our "Homes" because Greg and Kate make us feel so welcome, so comfortable and are such wonderful friends.  We visit, chat, eat a fabulous home cooked "Momma Kate" dinner, drink fine wines, play with The Doodles, go shopping, examine the motor coach upgrades and dock our boat at their home. Our buddy boats dock one mile down the road at Town Creek Marina and we all gather at the "Homestead." Our tradition is that Kate spoils us with her wonderful home cooking and then the next night we try to spoil them at one of the fine restaurants of Beaufort, NC on the waterfront. Buddy boat IP460 Cutter Loose with Eric and Patricia and IP380 Priority with Molli and Reuben completed our team visit. Thank you so very much for taking your time to spoil us so thoroughly. We really enjoy our time at "The Beaufort Rest Home for Wayward Sailors."

 Sadly we will be moving on south towards our planned stops, next stop Wrightville Beach after Mile Hammock Bay. Why Wrightsville? Why Not?

I finished the last of the 2005 Chateauneuf last night. It decanted for 24hrs and was as smooth as silk.

Always a fun visit and always way too short. Soon.... out west.

Happy Trails!
