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

Mar. 26 - Great Bridge, VA

Time for a Break
Atlantic Yacht Basin

We’ve been working very had on boat projects, so after I put a second coat of paint on the non-skid, we took the rest of the day off. Actually with so much of the deck wet there wasn't a lot that we could do. We decided to drive over to Virginia Beach. It's your typical beach town...city actually. It has all the usual beach shops, hotels, candy shops and little places to eat. They have a nice boardwalk along the beach, a safe way to ride bikes or walk the length of the beach. The weather today was sunny, but a little cool and breezy so we didn't get to spend much time walking on the beach. It was nice to get out and see the area.

Our same little morning visitor...we heard from marina help today that a goose has a nest in the bimini of a boat just down from ours.
The whole beach area in Virginia Beach is lined with hotels or houses

The Atlantic Ocean - todays water temperature was 49 degrees.  Brrrr
