Week in Review 4/23 – 4/29

Not much to say about our trip between Osprey Marina in Myrtle Beach, SC and Norfolk, VA.  The weather kept us on our toes but for the most part we watched many rain and T-storm cells pass to the north of us more than once.

Mornings and evenings were picturesque and osprey were a common sight. Sunday, our trip through Norfolk and Portsmouth with opening bridges, a lock, barges, tugs, tankers and, well, you name it, was perhaps our easiest time yet. The day was overcast, but calm and we saw very little boat traffic. A check of offshore weather showed that Monday looked to be the best day to head out. We opted to bypass Point Comfort and continue another 15 miles to the western shore of Cape Charles, VA.  With virtually no wind expected Sunday night, this would put us very close to exiting Chesapeake Bay in the early morning hours.

Interesting photos are only a click away along the Intracoastal Waterway:
