5/1 Elizabeth City

Crab pots to the left of me, crab pots to the right; here we are dodging crab pots again.

We crossed Albemarle Sound today.  The Sound is known for being choppy but we had a mild, pleasant crossing.  But the entire sound is populated with random crab pots, 14 miles of random crab pots.  Then we headed up the Pasquotank River to Elizabeth City, NC.  Elizabeth City is known for their roses and free docks.  The docks are back in to a very tiny finger slip (more like a fingernail slip) and although we were glad another looper caught our lines, we paid it forward and caught lines for others.  Each slip here is in honor of someone and we are in the Clark Slip.  Elizabeth City is where the Wright Bros. came to take a boat over to Kill Devil Hills.
