5.11- The water is back

"Captain Ralph" cruising Oriental Harbor

What seemed like about ten days to two weeks of constant and often heavy southwesterly winds, a front passed through bringing in cool winds from the north.

All that SWy wind had been keeping local water levels very low (all the water gets blown out into Pamlico Sound), which in turn kept Tow Boat U.S. quite busy round here.

You can tell the water levels are actually up high today by looking at the town's "Dinghy Dock" in the foreground. NEy winds blow the water into the river and creeks from Pamlico Sound.
