Time to Move

Well, Norma got to sit still in New Bern for two months. That's the longest she's been in any one place since we left home. The second month she sat there by herself while I went traveling about without her. So, by way of making it up to her, I decided we should take a trip. I was starting to get "port rot" from staying in one place too long anyway.

I need to have Norma hauled out for a complete bottom job anyway so I decided to do it in Annapolis.

Thus it was that I left New Bern at 0845 this morning. I motorsailed down the Neuse River into Pamlico Sound and then up Goose Creek. As I was approaching the Pamlico River, I got clobbered by a pretty nasty thunderstorm. Along with the storm came 30+ knot winds that made my crossing of the Pamlico River a lot rougher than it might have been. It was a little unplesant but it could have been worse.

I made it to the entrance of the Alligator / Pungo River Canal and anchored for the night. I actually managed to get the anchpr set in the dark and during a second thunderstorm. How about that?

I'm enclosing a picture of the Alligator River Canal. Is that banjo music I hear?
