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

May 7 – Great Bridge, VA

Great Bridge Historical Park Free Dock

"A single sunbeam is enough to drive away many shadows." —St. Francis of Assisi 

We've spent the last two days moving through the ICW in a remote section of northern North Carolina. There isn't a lot to see or do between Oriental on the Neuse River and Great Bridge, Virginia. It's more than 150 miles through man-made cuts and open sounds and bays. Even on a sunny, nice day there really isn’t much to look at, but this time it was wet, cold and dreary. Stan drove from the lower helm most of the time.

We arrived in Great Bridge just in time to visit with our friends on Amici before they head home to Connecticut. We’ll spend a few days in the area relaxing then move slowly up the Chesapeake. Our only schedule is to be in Baltimore before June 1 so we can catch our flight home to Texas.
