Great Friends in Great Bridge, Virginia

We’ve thrown our lot in with a pretty great crowd and, since we’re all going to the same place at the same time, we’ve been travelling together. This stop was at Great Bridge, Virginia, which has terrific free town docks. What a deal! We arrived about mid-day, so we all had time to do laundry, shopping, etc. Late afternoon we all got together on Celebration for a bread-making demonstration by Steve, and tortilla-making demo by Anne. After that (munching fresh tortillas and bread with herbed oil), we all walked to a nearby Mexican restaurant where you can eat and drink your fill (including good margaritas), for less than $30. Then back to Mr Mac, where Chris read a passage from his newest release, Scimitar Moon. Here we've got Jason, Laura, Steve, Roberta (holding a copy of Scimitar Moon), Lynn, Chris, and John (Anne's behind the camera). What a great day!


  1. Mr. Mac is the boat for that kind of get together with your ballroom sized salon. What a cool picture. Miss all of you, and so glad to see you together. Cannot wait to see you guys while you're here in St. Pete.

  2. Anne and Chris, thanks for having us all over, it was a great night. Can't wait to do it again. There is snow predicted for tonight here in MN, I may have to find some socks and shoes.

  3. Hello Chris and Anne, Carl and I have just finished reading Weapon of Flesh and Scimitar Moon and all we can say is WOW! There will be Chris A. Jackson books aboard Sanctuary from here on out! We are hooked! It was a pleasure meeting both you and Anne at the Gam and we hope to see you somewhere along the way South.
