We ended up staying in a marina in Little River because we just couldn't make it to our destination which was Southport N.C. I am always trying to save $$ by not staying at a marina but sometimes it is the prudent way to go. If Gary had had his way, we would have stayed in Osprey Monday, and been to Southport by Tuesday night. So my payback was having to get up at 5:30 Wednesday morning to hoof it to Southport from Little River which took four hours!! The reason for all of this was getting through the Cape Fear River before the tide went out. We have been fighting the tide most of the trip which pulls our speed from 8+ to 7 MPH. Makes a big difference in time and fuel.
