4/5/18-4/6/18 Alligator River to Elizabeth City to the Dismal Swamp

Below shows our routes over the past and next few days, from Albermarle Sound to Elizabeth City, through the Dismal Swamp on up to Norfolk. It was a short trip, thank God, to Elizabeth City from Alligator River across the Albermarle Sound (named for the Duke of Albermarle, if you care). We had fairly good … Continue reading 4/5/18-4/6/18 Alligator River to Elizabeth City to the Dismal Swamp

4/3-4/4/18 From shrimp boats to Dowry Marina—oh never mind. On to Alligator River…

Warning: as will become patently obvious, I'm still working on how best to show the logs of our voyages. The app I'm trying to use, Nebo, turns out to be kind of clunky, so I'm reduced to taking edited screen shots.

To those of you haranguing me for not writing recently, I am sorry. I feel as if there were not enough interesting or funny occurrences to regale you with, and then realized that maybe that means we are improving! Perhaps David and I have calmed down regarding our sailing abilities, and have progressed from screaming … Continue reading Lady’s Island to St John’s (65 miles), St John’s to Georgetown (70 miles), Georgetown to Osprey (32 miles)

3/14/18 Brunswick to Delegal (Savannah) to Beaufort, SC

Featured image is of HUNNY! (For no other reason than that she's so cute). Although we've only traveled about 150 miles or so since St Augustine, it's taken us over a week to do so--obviously we are not breaking any speed records. Brian (my brother) left by car right after we did from Brunswick, and … Continue reading 3/14/18 Brunswick to Delegal (Savannah) to Beaufort, SC
