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

April 23 - Great Bridge, VA

Getting Ready To Leave
Atlantic Yacht Basin

We spent the day getting the boat ready to leave Great Bridge. We filled the water tanks, ran a few errands, cleaned up the dock by the boat, put our bikes aboard and took care of last minute details with the marina. We will leave our car here until next fall. It will feel a little like leaving home when we cast off the lines. We've gotten to know all the dockmasters by name and made some new boating friends while we were here. We invited one of our new friends for dinner...her husband is moving another boat up from Florida and she is alone this week. They are from Ontario Canada and have shared a lot of helpful knowledge of the Erie Canal, Lake Ontario and the Thousand Islands with us. We truly enjoyed visiting with her and hearing her stories. Thanks Julie for all the information.
