Hunkered Down

Blowing hard. 20-25kts G30-35 tonight and well into tomorrow. We will hang on the hook until at least Thursday.

March on the ICW

Night’s are a bit chilly bit there is very little competition for dock space at Great Bridge!

Update Part 3?

Got underway Sunday past. Now tied up at the Museum at Great Bridge, VA. Moving south again tomorrow. Big blow coming. We will likely anchor in the North River, let the blow move through.

This will be our first time transiting this rapid.  We arrive 20 minutes early […]
