The Dismal

For several days we worked our way through the intracoastal waterway as it traveled through large sounds and narrow canals. From Elizabeth City we entered the Dismal Swamp. Several boaters and guidebooks have reported that the dark cola colored waters are excellent for drinking and filling the boat's water tanks. They do seem to be a wonderful home for cotton mouths, turtles, and osprey, but we were not tempted to drink from them.
