I didn’t leave until 9 AM because of fog, and by 9:30 I had already gone aground. So far I have been lucky that I have been able to get myself off. As I entered the Neuse River the winds started to pick up from dead ahead. By 10:30 the winds had reached 30 knots gusting to 38 knots. By the time I reached Adams Creek I was already exhausted, and I still had another 10 miles before I could find a place to stop. I hate to do it, but I had to pay for dockage because I couldn’t find any place to anchor.
Today is one of those days I find it hard to push on, and wish I had never started. Hopefully by morning I will be rested and ready to go again.
Love to all
