June 11 –
We made it to Norfolk, just squeaking under the last lift bridge without
having to wait. This bay is really impressive with all the warships
and aircraft carriers. Gives you a feeling of comfort when you a see
a sampling of what there is out there protecting us. We spent a few
days in this area having work done on our boat; we were in Norfolk
first at Waterside Marina, and then moved across the harbor to Portsmouth.
Met up with some fellow Loopers, Barb & Frank Wiegand and Vivian
& Bill Wood, who we had met before, and other friends of theirs,
and had a great dinner together.
