Great Bridge Free docks - across from Atlantic Yacht Basin

The start of the ICW!
 We weren't concerned about going too far today since we hadn't planned on crossing the Albemarle until Monday anyway. With that, we had a relaxed start and took time to refuel too. We had expected a crowded ICW but it was no more crowded than usual.

We wanted to take advantage of the free dock just south of Great Bridge but was concerned that it would be full, given the expected boat traffic. However, when we arrived, there was only one boat on the dock so we had plenty of room. The dock here has a nature trail right off the dock and it's easy on and off with the wooden walkway. That's an advantage for those with pets.

Easy dock to get on and off
We took Hoolie for a walk along one of the trails and came upon an area where they must hold outdoor talks? It consisted of a bunch of sawed-off tree trunks that seemed to be useful for sitting upon and a presentation table made up of the same tree trunks, interesting.

Have a meeting with nature...
Sunday morning continues the weather watch. Monday is a possibility but the weather apps disagree. We will move on to Coinjock and hope for the best.
