Bob and Pat prepared a special dinner for us with the best dry rubbed ribs we've ever had. We also enjoyed baked potatoes that we haven't had in ages. The microwave onboard Simple Life was removed to make room for more storage since we're rarely at a dock with electricity. I'd forgotten how much I'd missed baked potatoes.

Now that our experiences in the Chesapeake this fall are a distant memory we hope to be able to make up some distance every day. Our goals and objectives for the next few weeks are to move south with fewer stops along the way for touring since we have fallen behind due to weather conditions. So far we've anchored at Norfolk, VA stayed one night at the free dock at Great Bridge, VA, anchored in the North River, NC and at Deep Point, on the Alligator River in North Carolina.
