We just keep meeting more and more interesting people. The tradition of welcoming cruisers is alive and well in Elizabeth City. The city has a wine and cheese gathering here on the waterfront whenever there are 5 or more boats here. Last night we met sailors from Maine, a beer brewer from Ohio, (the Hopping Frog microbrewery, where they make a double IPA), locals just out for a few weeks of springtime sailing and a knitter who does the most intricate stuff I've ever seen. She supplements their kitty by getting up to $700 for her sweaters. (!!!) As a former knitter, I have great appreciation for her talent and think the sweaters are worth every penny. No, Steven, I didn't order one.
