Keep Moving!

We ended up staying an extra day in Oriental due to forecast thunderstorms that never materialized, just a few showers. The next day we headed farther north up the Pamlico sound and stopped for the night in Dowry Creek just past Belhaven NC where we took advantage of the marina car and went to the local Food Lion store to replenish our stores. Today we moved on up the Alligator Pungo canal through the Alligator river swing bridge and are now tied up at The Alligator River Marina where we fueled up, had dinner and plotted our next leg of the journey across the Abermarle sound and then north through the Great Dismal Swamp canal. We will have 2 locks and a couple of lift bridges to negotiate and then on to Norfolk  and the South end of the Chesapeake.
