Yesterday afternoon, We made it to the Intercoastal Waterway, just south of Norfolk, VA. Just in time since there is huge storm brewing outside and we were racing to beat it. It's 35+ knot winds out there and we are very happy to be calmly sitting inside what is locally know as "The Ditch". We decided to take The Great Dismal Swamp Canal route. We just came through the locks late yesterday and tied up the boat to the docks. We were in bed by 7pm, feeling extremely exhausted after our mulitday open ocean passage.
We are rejuvenated this morning and ready to enjoy the beautiful sights of the swamp. We hope to see some alligators today!
