where we go off to see the world, sailing on other people's boats
The Captain and the Ferry
We are sitting in Great Bridge Virginia tonight after transiting the Dismal Swamp Canal. Yes, it is a bit out of the way again...but what's the hurry? (And for those curious, we did find the bottom but only soft) Besides, it's still cold up north. I looked at the Block Island weather last night and saw lows in the low 40's. Nope, not leaving yet. So we'll hang around Norfolk for a bit.
Going back a week or so here is a picture of Lynn at the helm. There are far too few photo's of her on the blog, I'll work on that. This is the day departing Ocracoke. Long channel for deep draft boats, narrow, and of course being overtaken by a very large car ferry. This is most appropriate since today we received notice that her Merchant Mariner Captains Credentials are approved and in the mail to us. So here's the new Capt in command. Yup, I'm busy drinking coffee...
