Land Ho?   6 comments

Land Ho?

On the return trip from Shackleford Banks and Cape Lookout, up ahead in the distance and far from land, we saw an usual sight. Two motorboats (just off frame) anchored in, and the occupants had left to do… something. They might have been looking for clams, shells, or other form of aquatic life. We just don’t know for sure.

This is not just a trick of angle, really. In Core Sound, there are many places where the water is only a few inches deep even at mid-tide. It can make paddling difficult if the water gets too thin, and sometimes, you just have to get out and walk the boat to deeper water.
