woke up to light wind and calm seas in sound. High tide.ess

We will see how far I get today

Made it to Hatteras then with conditions changing took the free ferry to Ocracoke.

I guess they didn’t realize that a seat kayak takes the same space as a car.

Had to take the next ferry becaused kayak wouldn’t fit on the first one.

Then I had to Portage through a restricted area to launch from the beach at Ocracoke.

I paddled the length of the island in 15-20 mph headwinds, across sandbars and beds of seagrass.

I made the campground just as it got dark. I was checking in anf explained what I was doing. I got the site for free.

Had a long talk with Jim and his wife before setting up camp.
