"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

July 29 - Stafford, VA

Day 133 – Real Bathrooms
Hope Springs Marina

We passed lots of large beautiful homes on both sides of the river today, but with all the heat and humidity it was just too hazing to get a good picture. We also passed the Dahlgren Naval Surface Warfare Center, where we could hear loud booms going off. It was a little startling sometimes.

We are at Hope Springs Marina in the Aquia River. The marina has a wonderful clubhouse with two large TVs, kitchen and lounge, exercise room and the best bathrooms we have seen at any marina. It isn't close to anything, but it was the closest marina we could find to our niece’s home.  We spent the afternoon and most of the evening at the clubhouse waiting for the boat to cool off…enjoying the big screen TV and the wonderful showers.
