11.4- Migrant season

Vessels at anchor in Oriental harbor as the sun sets

The fall boat migration season is in full swing...

Folks headed south to FL, Central America, the Caribbean, and other warm winter lands, are travelling down the Intracoastal Waterway this time of year, with cooler weather on their heels (or stern or transom, I suppose.)

For the past week or so, I have counted between 6 and 15 boats anchoring in Oriental harbor every night. Lots of boats from New England, Canada and Europe have been keeping Oriental harbor and area marinas busy lately.

Many cruisers can be seen walking and riding folding bikes for provisions, boat parts, or just to tour the town while stopping over, and the bars and restaurants are seeing a lot of new folks with odd accents each night.
