Happy Cruising!
There are a couple of spots just the other side of the Pungo River just off the ICW around MM 104 and 100. We are just going to pull off at one of those.

Yes! Those are nice spots as well! If you decide you want a pool day, Dowry Creek Marina on this side of Alligator/Pungo Canal.


Have a great trip!!

I think the map has pretty well been covered for the route. I'm not a big fan of Waterside in Norfolk. I much prefer the extra little bit to Hampton Public Piers and the short walk to a plethora of restaurants on their little strip. Much more pleasant for us than Norfolk.

Without piling on we also think that the Coinjock Marina Restaurant is overrated, at least for prime rib. As noted above quantity over quality. Odd since their ribeye steak (same cut of cow) has been consistently good, they make good chicken breasts although like their prime rib the servings are too big. The stuffed mushrooms have been quite good.

In our opinion Coinjock prime rib is a spectator sport - more fun to watch than to eat.


Still a great stop - good docks, decent fuel prices. Gotta love a town that has two restaurants, a post office, and nothing else. *grin*

We made good time so went on and a little before 4 we pulled to the east side of the alligator River inside MM90. So now we only have 40 miles to Coinjock tomorrow then 50 the next day. so easy runs.

AND I am going to start another thread concerning the A&P Canal!
