We have spent the last week berthed at the
High Street Landing in Portsmouth Virginia. The now legendary Bob at Mile
Marker 0 Marine Supplies has helped us secure all the items and spare parts we
were needing, so we are planning to move on tomorrow. Having to rake up
the leaves on the deck and in the cockpit is a sure sign that it’s time
to continue on south.
Whilst we’ve been here we’ve
enjoyed a visit to the quirky Commodore cinema where we had a meal before
watching the excellent Lincoln, starring Daniel Day Lewis, a topical
subject so soon after our visit to Washington D.C.
We also took the ferry across Elizabeth
River to Norfolk for the day.
