Day 6--Long push north

Today was essentially a reverse of day 2--Pungo Ferry Bridge to Fishing Bay. Of course it couldn't be easy! For starters our chartplotter wouldn't work. Thankfully our charting app on the iPhone/iPad did! It was cool and breezy, but otherwise just a few showers dampened our trip through the bridges and locks. After following my friend Matt's ship, USS TRUXTUN, out of port we were slamming pretty hard in 4-6' seas which got K feeling a little icky. Given a crummy forecast for tomorrow and abating seas tonight we decided to push on until after dark to make Fishing Bay since we knew it would be a good spot to wait out the weather. We were rewarded with a beautiful sunset and 12 hours after we got underway we dropped the hook. With that, I'm off to bed!

Lunch for the Captain, made by the crew.
We made it through the locks!
It's the USS TRUXTON!  Hello to our friend,Matthew V.!
It's getting cold and windy!

Poor babe wasn't feeling so hot.
