I’m happy to have the girls back on board. We left Bellhaven, NC this morning before sunrise and travelled about 70 miles through the Alligator River-Pungo Canal, up the Alligator River and across the notorious Albermarle Sound.
Currently we are enjoying dinner on board at anchor on the North River just south of Coinjock, NC.
Tomorrow we will sail up to Norfolk where we hope to arrive around 8pm and continue overnight up the Chesapeake Bay. If all goes well we should be in the C&D Canal and possibly Cape May, NJ by Sunday.
Not sure if the weather will hold for us to make the offshore jump to the Fire Island inlet. Looks like some fronts are due to arrive early next week.
This Captain is tired. We weigh anchor before sunrise tomorrow so it’s time to turn in.
