North Carolina

Sunrise over North Carolina shore
We are still making our way down the NC coast. We've been going about 40-50miles a day & yesterday we figured out that we're just about 1/2 way (from our start in Connecticut) to the Bahamas!! :)  Scott said today that North Carolina has been his favorite coastline so far & I have to agree. It's so calm & really beautiful. The people have been so nice & full of southern hospitality. We've even seen dolphins the past couple days! Today we went through the biggest boat traffic jam I've ever seen. We're just cruising along & all of a sudden, smack dab in the middle of the channel, about a hundred little fishing boats. I was a little scared we might clip a few of them! They definetly made zero effort to get out of the way. Luckily, no collisions & after that, smooth sailing.
The whole town has "Gone Fishin' "
Love & Miss everyone alot !! Im glad to hear it's finally cooling down for all our friends & family in Phoenix.
Irene left her mark here too. This forest on the coastline had hundreds of snapped off  trees
Didn't think we'd see lime green houses w/pink doors until the Caribbean!

Just out of curiosity, the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. Why is the sunrise over land if you are on the east coast? You guys are already telling pirate stories. I think this is sunset.

I feel like I am traveling to the Bahamas too with your great blogs (minus the stress and anxiety)!
Thanks for taking us with:)
