The World Is Getting Smaller and Smaller and Smaller

Before we moved Mr Mac from the Fort Macon anchorage, we dinghyed into Beaufort to check things out. At the town dinghy dock we struck up a conversation with another sailor, Jason on Blue Blaze, who had recently arrived from Marsh Harbour, Bahamas, and who was waiting for friends to also arrive. It turns out that his wife, Laura, is from St. Pete. Weirder still, the next day we received a phone call from our friends, John and Roberta on Freedom, who started cruising this past winter, and had been in the Bahamas. They were now in Beaufort, and had heard that we were there, too. And, you guessed it, they were the friends that Blue Blaze was waiting for! So the crews of Mr Mac and Blue Blaze dinghyed over to Freedom for dinner and a great time.
