Running Just as Fast as We Can

We left the Alligator River Marina at 7:20 AM this morning, and we are heading north. As many of you may know, we are just ahead of Tropical Storm Andrea. We hope to go about 10 to 12 hours today to get us to Great Bridge, VA. We plan to spend two nights there while Andrea goes by.

As you can see the clods are slowly building as the chase us north. Ahead, we have blue skies with fluffy clouds.

This morning was a little rough again on the rest of the Albemarle Sound. As usual, your intrepid writer chose to pass the time away in her bunk listening to a book on tape. But, we are making steady progress now that we are back in the ICW. We just passed Coinjock. We're doing 8.2 knots! It's currently calm enough that Mike and Carol are attempting surgery on the outboard motor.
