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

May 25 - Great Bridge, VA

Atlantic Yacht Basin

We spent one more day at the marina. A cold front moved in yesterday so it was very windy and chilly all day. Stan spent most of the day installing the new heat exchanger and doing a few other small projects. Most of the other men on the boats we knew were doing maintenance project too...if you're not cruising then it's time for work. I did a little laundry and played gopher for him, so he didn't have to climb in and out of the engine room. We also spent time visiting with the other boaters that were waiting on the weather. None of us wanted to get into the Chesapeake on such a windy day. 

The honeysuckle is blooming everywhere right now and the air smells unbelievably wonderful.


I went across the bridge to the Great Bridge Memorial Park to take a picture of our boat. While I was there I rode around on the trails...very nice park.

We had a little visitor this afternoon...a Tufted Titmouse. He was so cute, I guess he wanted to get out of the wind.
