A Stop in Norfolk, Virginia

On our way north, we motored by Norfolk, Virginia, on our way into Chesapeake Bay. This time we stopped, anchoring at Hospital Point which is off of, what else, a hospital. We had great views of the city, including this fantastic sight of a schooner under full sail at sunset, sailing under an almost full moon. We met up with several friends here, including Steve and Lynn (Celebration), John and Roberta (Freedom), and Laura and Jason (Blue Blaze), so we all went into Portsmouth (on the opposite side of the river from Norfolk) for a night out.

The anchorage was calm, if not exactly quiet. It’s located just outside the main shipping channel, so we had many passersby, like the barge pictured below, during the night.
