OCTOBER 19TH, 2008
It is still blowing like stink on the outside but we would like to move a little so today we will explore sheltered Carter Creek and the Corrotoman River.
We noticed that some people had bamboo growing even this far north.
We passed many assorted styles of houses, both new and old.
This old barn is evidence of a past and different way of life on the creek.
We wondered what kind of stories this old boat had to tell.
There were not many boats out on the Rappahannock even though it was fairly sheltered.
We decided to also explore Myers Creek, where some friends live. However, when we ran aground, we decided that more in depth local knowledge would be required. On the way out we spotted a fellow Cape Dory (Maggie Rose).
We anchored for the night in the totally calm Eastern Branch of the Corrotoman River.
