DAY 11 OF OUR GREAT ADVENTURE

You know, maybe it is a better time to type the blog in the morning when we are awake. Susan shot the sunrise this morning. It's going to be too windy to move today. So we are just going to stay put and work on projects. If we left today, Oriental, NC would be our next stop. It's about 50 miles and we have to cross the Pamlico River ( 4 miles wide as it turns into the Pamlico sound ). Also the Neuse River can be rough. It's not rain that is keeping us put it's the wind. Pretty day to be in port.

We didn't post yesterday as it was a long day riding and getting tied up in the Alligator River Marina. After we ate I crashed at about 7:30. We enjoyed the ride from Elizabeth City to the Alligator River across the Albemarle Sound. It was a lot of open water with no particular beautiful shots.
Today we ran about 50miles down the Pungo Canal. This was very nice but we didn't see much wildlife. Not many birds, fish snakes. Pretty quiet the entire trip. I id get a few nice shots in the canal and the Dowry Marina. Two boats we met the first time at the Dismal Swamp Center are here at this marina. Since we are all traveling the same speeds we end ip together.
So, now I'll post a few pictures. I have a gallery but can't get it to show up on the blog. Maybe tech support tomorrow.
This picture I'm posting is the last one I took today of the moon coming up over Dowry Creek Marina.
