Homer Smith Docks and Marina in Beaufort - Last Day

Not a bad beach for being so close - all sorts of things for Hoolie to find to eat!;
Today we took advantage of the courtesy car and made a trip to Lowe's, the supermarket, not the home store of the same name. It's an upscale supermarket and we found everything we needed. We are fixed now until we reach Hampton.

We saw a big boat come in with a load of swordfish. There were dozens headed to the local restaurants
We explored the area some and found a beach just to the west of us. It was a nice walk for Hoolie and he found lots of things to attempt to eat - and Ann was watching him like a hawk and jerking him back just when he found a tasty morsel (that's been out in the sun for several days...) Hoolie's motto is to eat first and ask questions later. Unfortunately, that means we get what he can't keep down on the boat, hence the close watch on his eating habits but his reflexes are awfully fast. More often than not, he wins the reflex battle.

Tonight, Ann prepared the Mahi Mahi I got off the boat yesterday. She prepared a ginger glazed Mahi Mahi dish. that was beyond good. It was first marinated in honey, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, ginger, garlic and olive oil for 20 minutes. The fish was then cooked and the marinate carmelized and ladled over the fish. Delicious. Ann also served a watermelon salad with feta and mint as the salad, one of my favorites. Rice filled out the dinner menu and we rejoiced in the bounty of the sea.

On Sunday, we're headed north to RE Mayo for a dock and to meet up with old friends and a dinner. The weather is predicted to be good for crossing the Neuse and we're looking forward to dinner with friends.
