All Work and no Play

All work and no play makes Jack (and Jill) a dull boy. We didn't want to become too dull so we moved north to Chesapeake bay to play. Is all the boat work finished? NEVER, but we are moving on.

Here we are at the free dock in Great Bridge, VA. We walked to the grocery store and, quite frankly, went a little crazy buying all the items that the Oriental, NC market doesn't carry. Those small town markets have just the basics. We also stopped at DQ for a blizzard....yum.

Continuing north we traveled through Norfolk with all the Navy ships and anchored in Willoughby Bay next to the Navy base and watched all the helicopters fly.

We had a beutiful night in a secluded anchorage in the Chesapeake Bay. This is the sunset at Mill Creek. Beautiful, right?

Our friends on the Magothy, Mary and Chuck, invited us for one last visit at the dock at their house. One last? Yes! They are moving aboard their boat to prepare to cruise! We had lots of fun and used their car to run errands and saw fireworks from the house for the Fourth. Thanks again guys.

We headed south from the Magothy to St Michaels to see more fireworks on the fifth. It was a surprise to me. Ed arranged to meet for a raft-up with the newlyweds Jen and Craig. Great firewoks and spent a day exploring St Michaels....mostly from inside the pubs.

Now we are headed north again towards Maine. My family will meet us there for Labor Day.....very excited. We always see beautiful boats along the way.

And great sunsets.
