This was the view from yesterday's sail on the North River just across the state line in North Carolina. It was a couple of miles down the ICW canal from the ramp, a very nice ramp protected by trees on all sides, then up the winding, deep river where, at times, the only man-made object was Spartina. Nothing else but blue sky with a few white puffy clouds, water reflecting the sky, and trees along the shore. Strong, steady wind out of the north, a double reef tucked in the main. It was a magical day.
