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

May 12 - Gwynn Island, VA

Wharf Creek - Anchorage

"Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” ―Confucius

We're back in the Chesapeake. We left Portsmouth this morning in a light fog. The day was mostly damp and grey, but our ride up the bay was very comfortable. The only entertainment was watching a few tugs move a military ship away from the dock and into the channel as we passed Norfolk. By the time we passed Old Point Comfort and the inlet to the Atlantic the only thing we could see were other boats moving north...too hazy to see land.

We passed several lighthouses that I have taken pictures of before, but today we could hardly find them. It's hard to take pictures on a day like today. I might as well have had the camera set on black and white, because that's exactly how our world looked.

As we were coming into our anchorage we passed Imagination, our boat neighbors from Marathon last January. After dinner at Seabreeze, the little diner on shore, we went by for a visit. It's always fun catching up with people you've met before. As I was talking with Cyndie this evening I realized that some reader may not understand what the Monk Rendezvous is that we are going to next week. It's a get together for Monk 36 owners. A time to exchange ideas and look at other boats that are exactly like ours...the same but a little different that is. They may all look about the same on the outside but they are different on the inside. It'll be fun to be docked with so many other boats that look like us.
