We left the Wacha Wachee Marina with every intention of pressing on but when we got to Southport and looked ahead at the cold and gloom, we decided to stay. The arts festival in town, our good friends who took us on a town tour, Easter service and watching the movie Safe Haven which was filmed in Southport were some of the highlights of our stay. The winds were strong and a lot of rain fell but it was easy to get off the boat and wander around town. We left Easter Monday with hopes of making lots of miles but the Cape Fear River current quickly put us behind. So we pulled into Wrightsville Beach anchorage with hope for tomorrow.
