CT to FL Day 16
Belhaven, NC to Oriental, NC
We needed a pump out and arrived too late to get one yesterday when we arrived so we delayed out departure... marina opened at 0800... we got our pump out and left Dowry Creek Marina at 0900.

Was an uneventful day with minimal boat traffic... partly cloudy with light winds producing a small chop on the Pamlico Sound and Neuse River... had some rain on the Neuse River but it had cleared up before we reached our destination for the day... Oriental, NC.

We had hoped to get one of the free docks and monitored the web cams all days... the last spot was taken 30 minutes before we arrived.... so we called Oriental Marina and Inn and reserved a slip... luckily they had one available.

We were secure on the dock with shore power at 1530. Our location for night N35°01.468', W076°41.733'. We traveled today for 6.5 hours covering 48.4 nautical miles averaging 7.5 knots.

You can view the Oriental Harbor live web cam and see us docked... they have a live video feed now also... we're not leaving until about 0900 tomorrow.... https://towndock.net/harborcam

Long day planned going to Dowry Creek Marina in Belhaven, NC... about an 11 hour trip so we left before sunrise at 0615 so we could arrive before dark.

Was a nice calm day with light winds and bright sunshine... very nice day...

Arrived to our destination for the night Dowry Creek Marina... We were secure on the dock with shore power at 1645. Our location for night N35°31.978', W076°32.127'. We traveled today for 10.5 hours covering 72.5 nautical miles averaging 6.9 knots.

CT to FL Day 14
Great Bridge Chesapeake, VA to Coinjock, NC
Photo taken at 0530 when I got up.... We left Great Bridge this morning at 0800... passed through Great Bridge Bridge at it's 0800 opening... then to meet bridge opening restrictions...continued at a snail's pace to the next two bridges... Centerville Turnpike Bridge and the North Landing Bridge... total of 7 miles over then next 2 hours... hate3 this area when traveling during the weekdays and bridge opening restrictions are in force....

Once clear of the bridges it was smooth sailing all the way to our destination for the day... Coinjock Marina. We were secure on the dock with shore power at 1330. Our location for night N36°20.863', W075°56.970'. We traveled today for 5.5 hours covering 32.1 nautical miles averaging 5.8 knots.
