Lats and Atts

We're anchored near Little River, South Carolina--about 30 miles south of Cape Fear.  We cruised along today in the sunlight, with the electric motor humming quietly; about every 100 yards we'd spot an osprey on a nest.  The bald cypress trees seemed to visibly push out their feathery green leaves as we watched. Hopeful signs of spring are good. It all seemed surreal. The news from Japan is terrible.

If you're here on this page because you're taking a quick brief break from bad news, here's some brain candy.  Click to the next page to preview an article that's about to appear in the April 2011 issue of Latitudes and Attitudes, a slightly offbeat magazine for sailboat enthusiasts.  We met the author, Craig Ligibel, during our stay on Useppa Island in Florida.

Tomorrow I'll tell you all about our FURTHER adventures in anchoring, and scooting under low bridges, and meeting (I am not making this up) Captain Kirk.
