"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

Urbanna, VA

Urbanna, VA is a small town, probably the smallest we have visited, with a population of approx. 650.  One of our nations oldest seaports, it is located on the Rappahannock river which is off the ICW.  A small side trip we decided to take with George and Kathy on "Spey".   Every year in November they have an oyster festival complete with a oyster shucking contest, this festival attracts approx. 75,000 visitors.  I cannot imagine where they put everyone.

The weather has been all over the board, we had tornado warnings, which I  am happy to say, did not materialize.  It did clear out the  85% humidity , and lower the temps to around the mid 70's for a few days.  We will leave Urbanna in the morning and anchor out for a few days near Reedville. Then on to Solomon's.
