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.
