After checking Chris Parker’s weather forecast this afternoon we decided to bypass Solomon’s, travel overnight on the Chesapeake and arrive in Norfolk tomorrow morning. Chris mentioned a potential cold front passing Hatteras Friday night into Saturday. We were both concerned about how that would impact the sea state. If we leave Norfolk Thursday instead of Friday we will most likely have to motor the entire way around Hatteras but at least we won’t have to deal with “gnarly” seas like we did last fall. Of course, this is all subject to change.
It is chilly outside but we are keeping nice and warm inside the enclosure. We are so glad to have it.
One highlight of my day—I was able to use the microwave to warm up our lunch thanks to the new solar panels! We brought leftovers in 2 small silicone containers. The containers could go into the microwave and we could also eat out of them. It saved on effort and dishes. I love these solar panels already!
