October 19, 2010.
Started the day by going through the bridge at Great Bridge which predictably is called the Great Bridge bridge. After that it was motor, motor, motor. Virginia. Motor, motor, motor. Lunch. We passed a tugboat pushing a barge headed north in a fairly skinny section of the Intracoastal Waterway without incident. Ten minutes later we heard him call out “To the 2 southbound power vessels just north of the Pungo Ferry bridge, The first boat MIGHT make it but the second one won’t”. The power boaters had to wait while the tug proceeded through the narrow opening of the bridge before they could resume barreling south at break neck speed. Then it was more motor, motor, motor. North Carolina.
50 miles later we found ourselves anchored off to the side of the ICW just north of the Albermarle Sound.
