Inside North Carolina Coast
Right now we are sitting in front of the Figure Eight Island Bridge waiting for it to open so, to pass the time, I thought I'd check to see if we had an Internet connection and here I am.
We had another early start today and at the ungodly hour of 6:15 we set off. It was the first light of day and there was still a heavy fog in the air but we have some distance to cover and we don't want to arrive too late in the day. Not even ten minutes out we saw them again. Jumping out of the water, through the mist and fog, were three beautiful dolphins....one to starboard and two to port. What a welcome sight first thing in the morning. I tried again to get a picture but it seems I'm just not fast enough.
Believe it or not, by 9:00 we had two more sightings. This is what I signed up for!...this is awesome!
This part of the I.C.W. is very nice as we are running parallel to the Ocean. The North Carolina Beaches are on the outside and beautiful estate homes on the other (and a mixture of everything else in-between).
The pictures above:
1. The picture I missed of dolphins.
2. An example of everything else in-between.
