Last night was our first night in Virginia and it was incredibly calm in our anchorage. We woke up to a beautiful sunrise and on our starboard side we could see and hear kids at a children’s camp. Finally seeing some colour change in the trees too. By the time we weighed anchor at 07:50, the sun was shining brightly.
The winds were NW 10-15, up to 20 kn and we motored sailed. Another beautiful day out on the Chesapeake. We could see beautiful beaches and beach side homes along the shoreline.
The Fleet Logistics Center and many other terminals are here. Also many container ports. It is a hub of activity in here and you have to be watching everywhere with tugs moving container and navy ships around. Here is just a couple of the terminals and ports.
We see so many dredgers too. This one we saw was piped underground and then we could see the pipe go up on land and from there it was spread by machines. The whole hill, we assumed was from the constant dredging.
After supper, Jim and Cheryl picked us up and we dingied over to Norfolk. We walked around town a bit, found a Starbucks but it was closed. We went into Hooters for coffee and dessert and facetimed with the kids.
Today we travelled 58.5 nm.
