Arrived in Norfolk, you can see the Harry S. Truman as you pull into the harbor and the Wisconsin berthed right next to our ship. This is the largest navy base in the world and one of two NATO strategic command headquarters. In another earlier time of life, I lived here for a year, but don’t remember any of it. Passed over the Chesapeake Bay bridge-tunnel on the way in to port, this is part of the extensive bridge-tunnel network in this area, three bridge-tunnels. These are the only bridge-tunnels in the U.S.
the Insignia docked near the waterfront park.
Our plan.. Sail the Hampton Roads harbor in a schooner, have lunch and explore on foot in the afternoon.
We had a lot of storms in the afternoon, so I went to Starbucks to get fast wifi!
On our way to NY at 5.
Hoisting the sails
They had a poker powerboat event today for cancer research, the Poker Run. How it works:
Many powerboats leave the marina. I took a picture before they left. They all go to a variety of different marinas, collect a playing card at each one and whichever boat has the best poker hand at the end wins! Might be a fundraising idea for LBIF?
