October 31 Alligator River-Pungo River Canal to Broad Creek

We were up early admiring the sky before the sun was up. The sunrises here are gorgeous!

Eleven boats in here, including us. Yesterday, Soulmates and a couple other boats that left Elizabeth City with us, went through the canal. Hopefully, we will meet again on the water somewhere. We stayed here, knowing it is a great anchorage and this morning, the water is like glass.

We pulled anchor at 07:00 and started out on the water.

And the fog was still rising as we entered the canal.

And here are some highlights of our tip today:

The sun shining on the trees with the fog lifting was very pretty

We motored into River Dunes for fuel and water. There are beautiful homes in here

There are tennis courts, swimming pool, marina and restaurant. Their office and restaurant are in this beauty! Quite the resort!
