The renovated Cape Charles Hotel was quite a nice treat last time I was there.

Cape Charles was a favorite stop, despite a "rustic", though very hospitable, municipal harbor. They are involved in a fairly major renovation of the harbor with 44 new floating docks planned. Maybe we'll find one or two ready & available for rent.

The town of Cape Charles is a short walk (across the RR tracks) and was a delight 4-years ago. In any case, we always find a way to enjoy time on the boat and look forward to it after 6-long months off.

A small step into the past and a very comfortable way to pass a few stormy days.
