Getting Ready for a Swamp Stomp

October 28/09

Our sail from Hampton to Norfolk was great and we didn’t turn the engine on once (except for when we made a wrong turn but we’re not talking about that). Once we got into the city of Norfolk though we had to take the sails down as the tall buildings were ruining our wind (lol).

Norfolk, Virginia is an interesting place to see from the water as there are many war ships docked along the shores of every shape and size.

The weather was warm today 80°F and the sun shone bright making it most enjoyable. We stopped for the day just short of the “Great Dismal Swamp” in a wonderful anchorage called the “Hole in the Wall”. After spending five nights in Hampton, this was like a little piece of heaven.

Tomorrow we get ready for a swamp stomp.
