Why fly when you can ride? (file photo)

Our days of excellent traveling weather have continued, with winds mostly light, and when not, favorable for motor-sailing or even for sailing.

We knew we are getting close to home when we had an attack of flies and mosquitos last night in the Alligator River and this morning crossing Albemarle Sound. Later we were boarded by the Coast Guard for a safety/sanitation/registration inspection. No violations.

This afternoon, just as the South Mills lock raised us 8 feet to the level of the Dismal Swamp Canal, it started to rain. We tied up for the night on the bulkhead just past the lock, and it has rained hard for a couple of hours. Happy to have the dead insects washed off the deck.

Tomorrow we will reach Norfolk, VA, and we will stay there at least one night to get set up for the 150 mile run up the Chesapeake to home. If our weather luck holds, it won't take long.
