This ship was in port yesterday. The bulbous blue water tower stands on land, not on the ship.
The boat above, the Capt. Stacy IV, is what is called a "party boat" — fishing parties on day trips make up most of its passengers, who were impressive in number this afternoon.
This green ship was in port today. There's that water tower again.
This very small fishing boat was cruising along not far off the beach this afternoon.
This ship has been offshore for a few days now, and I'm not sure why. Yesterday I thought it might be waiting for high tide to come into port through Beaufort Inlet. But it was still out there today.
Notice how beautiful our weather is. Tomorrow will be my last full day in North Carolina. On Monday I'll be on the road and then in the air, flying back to France.
