Day 22 We are on ICW (Coinjock) NC
We decided on the Virginia Cut numerous bridges some swing some railroad and our first lock!
Timing is everything as some bridges open every hour some every 1/2 hour. Bridge number one there were 12 motor yachts and 14 blowboaters, 26 boats all treading water for 1/2 hours or so waiting. Quite the experience, all huttled together and then all into the lock (directly after the first bridge). Well not all fit so the motorboats went first (faster). We cruised 6kts-8kts 1/2 the way till we got to the Currituck Sound then 10 kts till we came into Coinjock NC we basically followed the same boat all day. We are now at Midway Marina, I highly recommend making slip reservations in advance as so many boats are heading south and slip space is limited. We reserved a slip last night here. The boat next to us is from Falmouth Ma and on the otherside a sail boat from Jamestown RI. I took lots of pictures Jim will load them in later.
