Tuesday, May 21, 2013 

We weighed anchor at 7:30 AM to 64 degrees, 98% humidity, 5 mph winds and fog as we headed north on the ICW from Sunset Beach behind Wildwood.  We proceeded cautiously because of shoaling and Ralph made notes along the way for Active Captain regarding the shoaling areas. The going was tedious for Ralph, he had to be so attentive.  There are many bridges on this route and we found the bridge tenders very courteous and all opened on request.  

We arrived at Snug Harbor, Atlantic City at 2:55 in a blow.  The wind had picked up and toyed with us a bit, but we were tied up when Ralph's folks arrived to deliver a car to us.  We thank Ken and Debbie Wescoat for use of their slip and  Jim and Lorraine Yost for the use of their car.

We were both worn out but decided to bite the bullet and get our laundry done.  I like the "Laundry Room" in Brigantine -- new equipment and about 40 each of large capacity washers and dryers.  I had hoped to have dinner at the Brigantine Diner -- comfort food -- a hot meatloaf sandwich -- but to our dismay, the Diner is gone and a CVS is on the site.  We got a recommendation for the Macedonian Grill so we had a good dinner there and I did have their meatloaf which was quite good.  Ralph had souvlaki chicken which he thoroughly enjoyed, too.  We came back to the boat, put the laundry away and went to bed.  It was a long tiresome day.

Here are a lot of pictures from today:
