25 April 2014 | Closing in on Home
Wednesday we headed north on the Alligator River, aiming for the Virginia Cut of the ICW. But first......as we turn north onto the river, we are met with strong north winds, in the 20-27 range, making for a rather bumpy ride. Another boat, well ahead, radioed back that the Albemarle Sound was ‘not [...]

We agree it was beautiful, but yikes, the pressure to stay in the deep areas, don’t anchor in the channel, [...]
