US flag over marinaWe finally get to celebrate 4th of July in the USA again after six years! But, we kept it on a nautical theme by celebrating at the marina in Carolina Beach where Tahina is staying.

During the day we had fun watching thousands of boaters taking their boats out down the ICW, many of which stopped at our fuel dock. We saw one boat go aground, and another damaged his boat running into a piling with his solar panel on the fuel dock.

The marina ordered in some BBQ from a popular restaurant in town, and most of the resident boaters and a few transient ones showed up for a bite and drinks. Karen and I were pretty popular with lots of folks asking about our trip. Later a bunch came by Tahina to hear more stories and see a few pictures.

In the evening, we weren’t disappointed we didn’t go to Wilmington where the big fireworks show was being held. There were tons of folks shooting fireworks all up and down the ICW. So, we had plenty to watch.
