North Carolina I.C.W.-Not For Wimps

I had a wonderful evening anchored in Mile Hammock Bay-Camp Lajune,N.C. The bombs bursting in air around us did not bother me but we left the beautiful anchorage to a lightening show .Onward we went and arrived at the first bridge to find that the bridge tender forgot to turn on his radio,in the nick of time we got his cell number and up went the bridge.The next bridge opened only on the hour so we tried to idle down to wait.The current then sent us into the shallows . We got out only to be bombarded by fast  flying fishing boats and even one who was setting his net across our path directly  in front of the bridge.When we finally got through at full throttle we found opposing current allowed only 3 knots speed.This was as I watched the weather radio on the phone showing that the thunder we heard was an approaching storm front.
All was good as we found the Carolina State Park Marina almost empty and tied down and enjoyed a dinner and long shower.It was only 30 dollars with electric and water included here but quiet a walk to any town services so it it's an evening of rest.
