Unidentified Flying Bugs

26 May 2016
Thursday May 26
It was 8:15a.m. when we left Oriental. Winds were 10-15 out of the south west. We sailed up the Neuse River and up the Hoboken Canal to the Pamlico River. The Pamlico River was full of life. Birds diving in the water and fish jumping out of the water. We saw a big schooner headed towards Bath. We've heard that they have a big celebration planned there. Then, out of nowhere, the bugs were attracted to our boat like a magnet. I've never seen so many different bugs at one time. There were no- see-ums, nats, little flies, biting flies, horse flies and a few other unidentified flying bugs! It was just too hot to have the screens in, so we just had to swat flies. We heard a may day. Two navy jets collided about 20 miles from us. We heard that there were 4 survivors in the water. A fishing vessel in the area was able to assist. Once we headed up the Pungo River, the bugs left as quickly as they'd come. We pulled up to the fuel dock at Dowry Creek marina just outside of Belhaven at 3p.m. As soon as we were tied up, I headed for the pool. After a swim and a hot shower, I fixed myself a glass of wine and went to the captain's lounge for happy hour while Carl took his shower. Carl has spent a lot of time looking at the weather and studying all of our options if it turns ugly. We will leave early in the morning to get as far as we can. There is a possible tropical depression developing and headed our way.
