Elizabeth City North Carolina
Weather finally settled down and we took off on Sunday morning travelling thru North Carolina. The water-way jumps from sound to sound connected by narrow sheltered rivers and cuts. From the woods of North Landing, the river opens into the 15 mile stretch of Currituck Sound. Then the waterway weaves thru pine forest again before opening to the expanse of Albemarle Sound.
The sound is wide and can be rough. Harmony was doing 8 knots with sails up as we entered the Alligator River; not many places to stop so Harmony and crew stopped about 2:30 and relaxed for the afternoon in a very quiet anchorage and watched the parade of boats go by. We were also joined by about a dozen other boats. It is fun to watch boats anchor and all the things they do to get settled. Dinner was homemade Beef Stew, salad, fresh bread and cookies. Very quiet night and all slept well.
