Rivah Home

30 May 2016
Monday, May 30
The windlass is huming at 6:10 a.m. this morning. The anchor is up and we are ready to go. It is cloudy, but we haven't had any rain overnight. We see Old Point Comfort Lighthouse off our port and then the Frying Pan Shoals Lighthouse on our starboard side. We are in the Chesapeake Bay and it feels good to have 30+ feet under the keel. Winds are light and variable and we are motoring at 6.5 knots. It is nice to see dolphin again and the occasional pelican. There is a misty rain on and off. The sky is all shades of gray. Eventually the sky turns solid gray and it is raining buckets. It continues on and off the rest of the day. We pass familiar landmarks, Wolf Trap Lighthouse, Gwynn's Island and Stingray Point. I always feel like I'm home when we reach the Norris Bridge and then pass by Whiting Creek. Another five miles up the Rappahanock and we are entering the channel at Urbanna Creek.
In Richmond, we refer to homes on the rivers surrounding the Chesapeake Bay as "Rivah homes". We are docking our "Rivah home" in Urbanna on the Rappahannock River. We are looking forward to spending time with family and friends there.
Our tans may be fading, but the memories of this 7 1/2 month adventure will last a lifetime.
