Since it's Friday, Eileen thought it would be nice to get all the cruisers together at 5:00 for a little 'Happy Hour', BYOB and appetizer. She went around to all of the boats to invite everyone. Her plan was to gather at the picnic tables on the north end of the marina. Rita and I got to talking . What if the winds continue blowing at this strength? It could get very uncomfortable this evening. So, we went to the office and asked if we could use the nice room that's going to waste storing bikes! The manager gave her okay and said they would move the bikes out and sweep the floor...wonderful!

With the direction of the winds, the beach side of the resort was the warmest place to spend our day. Soon it was time to shower and make my Buffalo Chicken Dip. Chuck and I were the first ones to arrive at our 'happy hour'...but soon we had a large number of cruisers show. It's always fun to meet new boaters and find out where they are from, where they've been, and where they're going. Once couple that stands out are Teresa and Greg and standard poodle, Winston. They have a 49 foot Katie Krogan called Sea Quill and their homeport is Oregon Inlet, NC> They previously owned a home for years at Pirate's Cove, Manteo but decided to sell their house and move onto their boat.....cool
