Saturday on the Water

We left Atlantic Yacht Basin early this morning with the intent of making it to Yorktown.

Just for Linda, we have one last look at Chanticleer. It certainly is a beautiful boat. 

We made good time so that we could make it through the first bridge and the lock.

We made good time, and we soon found ourselves in Norfolk.

And then the fun began. As we got closer and closer to the Chesapeake, it got rougher and rougher. Alas, Dear Readers, I was forced to take to my bed to sleep through it all. According to the rest of the crew, they saw four dolphins. There were also lots of boats out enjoying the day. According to some of the crew, we had a great sail today. I don't know. I was asleep. But, for others, it was a great day.

We are now at the York River Yacht Basin. It is a lovely marina with new docks. The marine store has great supplies as well as some food and jewelry.

After checking in, we decided to have a drink at the York River Oyster Company. One look at the menu, and we decided to have an early dinner. After all, some of us missed lunch! Great food. Great drinks. The only bad thing was that they did not have cake for dessert. Oh well. Maybe at the next place....

We also had visitors from the boat behind us. They really wanted to see the inside of LUX. As always, we are happy to have visitors. We love showing off our boat. We think she is beautiful. It's nice to have others agree with us.

Great pix of Chanticleer, thanks ... I haven't seen that type of cabin cruiser in person. You-all are making amazing progress and that is something to crow about!
