First, the transit out of Hampton Roads into the Elizabeth River brought us into one of the busiest places I've ever seen. Between the Naval Station Norfolk, with all it's military vessels, and the gigantic shipping terminals and shipyards, the scale and quantity of the machinery was overwhelming!
|Massive Shipping Terminals|
|Two Armed Hulking Monster|
|Look at Those Big Guns!|
|Hospital Point Anchorage|
|Are You Sure We'll Fit?|
|Following The Pack Through Gilmerton|
|Great Bridge Lock|
So after seemingly endless miles of drowned trees and marshes, we set anchor in a little side creek in the middle of nowhere in the marshes, and only about 4 NM from the North Carolina border.
|Traveling In Convoy|
Total travel for the day was 39 NM (45 Statute Miles) , anchored at mile marker 30. All in all, a great day.
