We crossed into the Chesapeake almost exactly 6 days after departing Coral Harbor. It was a good passage. Lots to do and see to keep us entertained for 6 days.
Walt and Troy make good crew and I would love to have them again. As a matter of fact, I have had 6 different crews, 17 different people (some of them twice..... glutton for punishment???) on UNABATED since last Sept and all of them were the best. After talking to many other owners and captains I feel very fortunate to have had such good luck finding good crew and sailing companions. My thanks to all of them and their families for giving them up for long periods of time.
We spent Saturday doing the customs thing, refueling the boat and then attended a "Marina Party" that was being held... free beer and pulled pork.
Saturday night we took a taxi into downtown Norfolk to see the fireworks for their HarborFest. We had dinner ashore for the 1st time in 6 days. Norfolk is a happening place.
The guys left on Sunday for the drive back to Greensboro. I spent the day doing laundry and getting the boat cleaned and ready for the next leg.
On to Deltaville......
Dawn from "Cat Tales" asked what kind of Lure we used to haul in dinner.
It was a 10 dollar silver looking thing from West Marine ( I had an expiring 10$ certificate and didn't know what else to buy).
By the end of the trip it was pretty beat up, teeth marks and all......
Picture of Walt with the fish .... A little lighter
