We spent the last few days motoring through the Dismal Swamp, crossing from Virginia into North Carolina. For most of the swamp we traveled through a canal that was at times packed with other cruisers heading south. We were thrilled to find among them two couples traveling together who are close to us in age! They even both have dogs on board which was a special treat for me. We had a little party on the Wildcat the first night we met complete with brats, cocktails, halloween candy and the game Cards Against Humanity (thanks Tyler!). It's fun to travel in a loose group instead of totally solo like we have been.
