"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do, than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain

Norfolk was a good stop, we were there with George and Kathy on "Spey" Two other loopers were also at Waterside Marina in Norfolk, Gerry & Linda on "Monk's Vineyard" and Ron & Bev on Sea Venture" . It was good to see them. Gerry & Linda had a rental car and were kind enough to give Jim a ride to the local West Marine store.
Dinner was at Hooters, it is right next to the marina. I have never been to a Hooters, that was interesting, and the food was good. The picture to the left is of the shopping area next to Waterside Marina. We had an unwanted visitor at 3:00 in the morning, there were 3 teens hanging out around the docks, one of them decided to board our boat, which instantly woke us up. Needless to say, Jim had a few choice words for this young adult and he quicky got off the boat.
While in Norfolk we went to Nauticus, which is part Navy museum and part ocean kind of info. We toured the USS Wisconsin, the next 2 pictures show that.
These pictures were from the ocean part of the museum, top and bottom.
We left Norfolk on Tuesday and headed to Hampton, VA
