10.26- Harbor full

Boats anchored in Oriental Harbor after sunset

There were a total of 17 boats at anchor in Oriental harbor tonight as the sun set. Mostly sailboats, but a few trawlers.

Town Dock and many transient slips at the marinas were also full.

Many of these boats are "snow-birds" heading south on their winter cruises. A few are probably boats that have been parked up north during hurricane season for insurance purposes... Hurricane season ends on November 1, and boats will then begin moving en masse along the Intracoastal Waterway past Oriental as they move back south of the North Carolina/South Carolina border, where insurance policies often do not cover risks during the season.

Here is another view of the harbor, looking back towards the Oriental Harbor Marina and the Point Pride Seafood docks:

For an old man surrounded by picked corn fields, this is really nice to see.
