It was 44 degrees when I pulled into the ramp at Elizabeth City yesterday morning, and blowing a bit more than forecast. I thought about tucking in a reef but decided to see how it felt with all sails up.
How did it feel? Spectacular! From the town's waterfront to Forbes Bay and Cobbs Point, I spent the entire day riding the breeze. Always appreciative of my Ice Breaker thermals, they kept me warm and comfortable.
I was even treated to a small regatta from the local yacht club. Plus a few snowbirds came through by the way of the Dismal Swamp Canal.
Days don't get much better than this. Late afternoon as I began the drive home I noticed the temperature had soared to 50 degrees. How nice!
