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

Oct. 1 - Great Bridge, VA

Atlantic Yacht Basin

Our trip today was short miles wise, but still took a long time...lots of bridges. We were slowed down by the first railroad bridge past Norfolk, which messed up our timing for the Steel Bridge. So the agenda for today was hurry up and wait. 

Our trip across Hampton Roads and past Norfolk was easy. The wind and seas were nice to us and there wasn't much boat traffic. We are now back in the ICW at the Atlantic Yacht Basin. We'll stay here an extra day to run a few errands and give Stan a chance to change the oil in the engine and generator. Since this is our sixth time coming past Norfolk there really isn't anything new to report on, so I'll just share a few pictures.

Once you pass Norfolk the ICW gets very pretty
