From Lafayette River to the ICW
09 November 2019 | Great Bridge
With gale force winds predicted, we could not have felt more secure. The Lafayette anchorage allowed us protection from three points and we were able to sleep through the night with an occasional check of our surroundings. This was much different than we were anticipating...nice to have those little surprises.
When we woke the winds were still kicking up a pick so we treated ourselves to a nice warm breakfast and enjoyed getting a few chores done. Jaxon is doing great as long as there are no halyards clanging. All kidding aside, he is doing much better. He seems to be getting his sea legs back.
We decide to depart around 1100 hours and head for Great Bridge Locks and hope to tie up on the south side of the locks beyond the bridge on the wall for the night. The captain is navigating and sychronizing his timing to the various openings of the bridges.
We are through the locks at 1330 hours and tied up on the wall by 1400 hours. We wanted to take on fuel at Atlantic Yacht Basin but the fuel dock was packed and there was only one spot left on the wall so we grabbed it. Jaxon was happy we did as we took him for a walk around the Great Bridge Battlefield Park. He enjoyed all the fumes that were not “diesel” and seeing other “dogs” was a plus.
Another brisk night so we will finish our chili and cornbread and call it a day while we await the fuel dock in the morning.
