Leaving the South - and all that High Cotton - behind!

19 June 2010
" High Cotton" : a Southern term originating from the antebellum era when high cotton meant that crops (and likewise the prices) were good. Today, if you are in "high cotton", you are well off in terms of happiness or wealth.

We finally got the weather window we needed to leave Virginia and start the trek back to the NorthEast. We left the dock in Hampton early on Saturday morning, headed out of the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay and turned North. We were sad to be leaving as we have had such a good time and will always have a fondness for this part of the land. From the scent of the Magnolia, to the steaming heat and humidity, from the quiet, sylvian anchorages to the good ol' Southern hospitality (this means you Bill and Mary!) - fond memories. This also draws a close to this chapter of our travels as we head to our home waters and the next phase of our adventures.
