On Day 5 of our U.S. East Coast journey, we cruised offshore from Southport, NC, to Beaufort, NC. We came in past a dredger through a rather choppy inlet to continue our trip “on the inside”, meaning on the Intracoastal Waterway, or the ICW.

On Day 4 of our trip, we cruised again offshore from Charleston, SC, to Southport, NC. While this is a relatively short leg and we have the fuel range to go straight from Charleston to Beaufort, NC, we love stopping in the town of Southport, NC anyways Southport is a charming small town on the southern North Carolina coast, where the Cape Fear River meets the Atlantic Ocean.

On Day 3 of our trip north, we cruised offshore from St Simons Island, Georgia, to Charleston, South Carolina. The Atlantic was calm, and the only things we saw were some large cargo ships hanging out in the open water, waiting to enter the Savannah River.
