On the hook in Reedville
20 October 2011 | Reedville, VA
Monument to cooking fish
On 10/18 we had a lovely motor into a south breeze 40 miles down to Reedville, VA. This is the home of the Menhaden fleet - not nearly as funky as it was 40 years ago as a lot of the sunken fishing boats and rotted piers have been removed. We anchored near the town to be near the seafood deli where we picked up crab cakes and scallops.
The weather 10/19 was a constantly changing mix of rain, fog, and mist. Then last night and today the winds have been very strong out of the south, but our anchor has held.
In part because of no internet service where we were, this afternoon we moved about 5 miles south to a lovely little creek which has a bit more protection from the wind as well as internet connectivity... hence this post.
Tomorrow should be good for going south, and we hope to be in Hampton Roads the day after tomorrow. Then we start guessing about hurricanes in conjunction with our insurance company.
