We got up around 8 today and made the short trip into Bellhaven and put in at the Bellhaven Town Docks since the Bellhaven Waterway Marina, with their world class restrooms, cannot handle boats with more than 6′ draft.  We had a nice lunch in town with Joe and Peggy at Fishhook Cafe  Really good lunch at an extremely reasonable price. Bellhaven is a quiet little town (a 2 light hick town as one of the retired shrimpers here described it) so we walked around and explored it a bit.  If you would like to buy a hotel and marina Riverforest Marina is for sale – still.  Catfish Dive Service dove on the boat to clean our prop and discovered that the zinc was nearly gone and loose on the prop so now we have a fresh zinc and a clean prop.  It sounds a little better.  Richard, Janet, Joe and Peggy joined us for wine and hors d’oevres on Merlin and then it was off to dinner at Spoon River Restaurant on Pamlico Street.  This is a new farm to table restaurant with a great menu, an attached wine shop where you can pick your dinner bottle and a fantastic chef. All of our dinner selections were excellent.  This restaurant could make it in any big city in the country and the prices were very reasonable.  We will be sure to eat there again.
