The Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, Dismal Swamp Visitors Center, South Mills, NC

C’mon baby, head south, with the ones you love! The ICW…finally! The cold has inspired me to cook: crusty white bread (recipe courtesy s/v JessyMo) and yogurt. We tasted our first slice of bread while waiting at Deep Creek Lock (STM 10.6) in the Dismal Swamp. Oh, my…HUGE success! Yum. A dismal (rainy and ick…) night rafted three across at the Dismal Swamp Visitor Center, but beautiful anyway. Time to get to a marina to plug in and run a heater. It’s COLD! Elizabeth City and more cooking experiments: refried beans and corn bread…yum! And even more experiments: oatmeal and lentil soup.

Love, Us
