This weekend was the first time that "going to the boat" actually felt like a mini vacation to me. After last weekend, driving back to the boat on Thursday for the long holiday weekend felt like a little too soon. At first. But being in New Bern is a whole different experience than Washington. Maybe it also had to do with the fact that it was a holiday weekend and that we had our first overnight guest. But for whatever reason, this weekend just felt good.

We made it to the marina in time to get settled, drive in to town for groceries, grill some dinner, and catch New Bern's fireworks show. We weren't the closest, but there was just something so cool about watching them from across the water on our own boat. Absolutely a wonderful way to celebrate the 4th of July.
The next morning we took Eva on her first sail ever! It was a really calm day with not a lot of wind, but it was a great way to get back in the water after last weekend's weather.
And she loved it!
