This morning we are at the docks on the Beaufort,N.C. water.Yesterday we awakened early to a gorgeous sunrise at an anchorage in Campbell creek,all alone except for the mosquitoes that flourish in the constant rain.It was a wonderful day down the I.C.W. until afternoon when a torrential downpour came about suddenly,as much rain as Hurricane Irene and lightening everywhere.I n a narrow section of the canal I prayed while Mike got us safely to the Beaufort city dock. was treated to a yummy soft shell crab then and Mike enjoyed a few well deserved adult beverages.The marina had a free loaner station wagon so off we went( before dinner) to the hardware store and grocery store.
I had picked up a pressure cooker cookbook -Miss Vickie's Pressure Cooker Recipes- in Annapolis and have been enjoying the tasty and easy meals.It is the best source to learn pressure cooking ,a fat volume with great advice.Pressure cooking uses less fuel,saves time and meats come out very tender even with cheap cuts.
Our fuel and water tanks are refilled and now await a tide change to leave the dock but for the seventh day in a row rain clouds are all around us.
