FL to CT Day 21
Layover Oriental, NC
Due to high winds we are staying in Oriental until the weather settles down. We had severe thunderstorms last night with wind gusts to 40 knots.
We have the Neuse River and the Pamlico sound ahead of us and both can be pretty nasty with high winds. Looking at forecast we will most likely be here in Oriental till Saturday morning.
We are docked next to a huge scallop boat and had to put out the large fender balls to keep us apart. West winds at 30 knots with higher gusts and it's pushing him toward us. He is actually shielding us from most of the wind and waves... the harbor actually has white caps in it.
We do have some nice neighbors on the dock...
