Day 22 - Norfolk to Deltaville, VA

Norfolk was decidedly a very interesting place to pass through. Lots of new things to see. The navy yard is enormous. The fleet of vessels enormous. Everything we see is simply "oversized" in every direction.

This is the best picture I could get of the navy yard but it dosn't represent well the "feeling" of just how enormous it all is.

they even has 4 (or maybe 5) submarines in there.....

After the Navy yard we pass through Hampton Roads and the Thimble Shoal lighthouse....

.... on our way into the Chesapeake Bay. We are now sharing the shipping lanes through Hampton Roads with some serious traffic...

We even found some friends along the way...

But as you can see, we are experiencing some super calm water. There is not a puff of wind anywhere. We wonder how long this will keep up.....

A mere couple of hours later we find out.... Though the wind stays dead calm all day (awesome), the clouds begin to thicken and about a half-hour out of our destination at Deltaville the rain starts. Bummer! We have to dock in the rain..... sorry, no pictures. I was too busy trying to keep my phone/camera dry.
