11.10 - Southern exposure

Solar array atop Hwy. 55 bridge over Oriental harbor

The solar panels that power the red and green passage lights on the NC State Road 1308 bridge across the mouth of Smith's Creek onto the river Neuse...

The solar panels face south, towards Adam's Creek on the other side of the river Neuse... Adam's Creek is the southern continuation of the Intracoastal Waterway leading to Key West.

The anchored boats face into the north-easterly winds that have brought us a taste of autumn and elevated water levels as the wind blows Yankee air and Pamlico Sound waters up into the river.

Tomorrow morning the boats will head south down the Adam's Creek ditch to Beaufort, Morehead City or Swansboro... or maybe they will stay at anchor and wait for the rains from the remnant former-hurricane Ida to pass before weighing.
