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

May 14 – Deltaville, VA

Dozier's Regatta Point Marina

"Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air." ―Ralph Waldo Emerson

We woke up to a beautiful day, a perfect day to explore Deltaville and enjoy their Seafood Festival. The festival was small but the food was wonderful. We shared a bowl of crab soup and a crab potpie...both were full of crab and were delicious.

The festival was located in two places, so after wandering through the small art show and earring some wonderful food we rode our bikes to the Maritime Museum were there were more art venders, food booths and exhibits. We spent the rest of the afternoon checking out boat yard as possible places to leave The Pearl for the winter.

The marina hosted a party this evening as a kick off for the beginning of the season and we were invited to take part...a Mexican Fiesta. It’s been fun talking to people here; everyone we've met at the marina and in town has been very friendly.
