Just for Linda

Tonight, we are docked at Atlantic Yacht Basin in Great Bridge, VA. It is actually more of a working boat yard than a marina. In fact, a really large cabin cruiser from Baltimore is in the yard right now because it hit something that bent a shaft. At about 30 degrees according to Mike. Ouch!

But, the real reason this blog is for Linda is that there is a rooster here with us:

This small boat's name is Chanticleer. A chanticleer is a proud and fierce rooster that dominates the barnyard. This boat certainly dominates Atlantic Yacht Basin! 

Dear Readers, you may remember that Linda's favorite photo subject (after dolphins, of course) is a chicken. I have been trying to capture a really good chicken for her during this trip. I think I succeeded with this one.

Yes, indeed, a superior yacht. And quite the chanticleer in this marina!

Meanwhile, back to our adventures. We really like this marina because you can easily walk to a great shopping center. It has a wonderful grocery, a Dollar Tree, and a Panera's. Best of all, there is a Hancock's Fabric! Yay! We walked into town, and we had a good time shopping.

Back at LUX, we prepared a lovely dinner of stroganoff and salad. It all turned out to be very tasty. Now, we are having a discussion about tomorrow's destination. It will be interesting to see where we end up.

What an exciting trip! First you get chicken on steeples, then chicken wine and NOW you discover a chicken boat ... Rather a boat named after a male chicken ... Very few nationalities consider boats to be of the male gender ... I bet there is an interesting layer of stories behind the name "Chanticleer" ... You have really egged-on my curiosity!
