Saturday, 9/27/08

We are swinging gently at anchor in the North River, just short of the Albemarle Sound. We thought we'd make it across the Sound today, but timing bridges and the current worked against us. That's ok, there is a gentle breeze keeping us cool and bug free so we enjoyed drinks and snacks on the bow tonight. It was just about four years ago when we were new to The Rose that we 1st made this trip with Capt. Mark Chest from Baltimore to Alligator River Marina. Paul and Sue Graham, (Odyssey) were waiting there to coach us for the rest of the trip to Brunswick, GA.

Tomorrow we should be at Dowry Creek Marina a sentimental favorite which will be an overnight stop. We had our mail shipped there and we know it's arrived after making a phone call to Mary the owner. Since we only physically receive mail 1x month this will be a holiday of sorts. Based on our current location, we should be Melbourne, FL on October 10th.
