Sometimes sailing days are pretty mundane!! Leaving Bellhaven there is a neat breakwater protecting the fairly "exposed" marinas.

As you get closer to the breakwater...appears to be a favorite roost also!  (Those little dots on top of the pilings are hundreds of birds!)

Down the Pungo River and then into the Pamlico....the winds started off the morning great, but then were mediocre at best. So, we decided to take our fellow cruisers advice and pull in to Juniper Bay just past Swan Quarter.  Note the dragonfly peeping around the edge of our flag!

Not a lot going on in this peaceful little bay.  I really must get a better telephoto camera....there were some lovely white birds out there in the marsh, but you can hardly see them in this photo.

That's it for the day!  Lovely breeze with all the hatches open (with screens installed for the mosquitos!!)

Then, at 3AM there was a mad dash all around to close them since we got a nice little storm - but the anchor was well placed and we had no problems riding it out.  Off to Ocracoke tomorrow!
