Re: Heading south

Well, I guess you are set then. There's a little more to do there than in Deltaville. Hope you like golf

Re: Heading south

Micheal,

Looks like you are making good progress south. And such freedom you have!

Please take some pictures to post later, for those of us who are staying north.

Regards,
Brad

Re: Heading south

I am taking pictures along the way and will do a picture post once I can get hold of a decent interweb conection. We gassed up Tessie to the brim today. Tiki is still half full, so wont need any fuel till the big boat gets thirsty again, Took Tessie into town to do some shopping. The dock master here is ever such a helpful and friendly person. By the time we were back alongside Tiki it was to late in the day to get to the Dismal swamp canal so we are going to pull the hook tomorrow morning and head there then.
To be continued

Re: Heading south

Stay warm old friend. Wish I were headed south as well. Damned it's cold and snowy up here. Hope to see you again when it's warmer.

Re: Heading south

The day did not go quite as planned as the weather got in the way. We tried to get from Point comfort ( what a name for a choppy place like that ) to the Dismal swamp to have an evening bbq there but it got real bad trying to get the 4 miles across the river mouth and we did the brave thing and turned around and dropped the hook in Hampton Roads harbor to wait for a break in the weather to get to the other side of the river and by the looks of things we may be stuck here for a couple of days.
But here are some pics for you as there is a half way decent wifi link here in the harbor.



























And yes the crew is all exited about the trip





Just some moments taken with the phone camera for now. I'll get the good stuff out when I have more time.

That's pretty great stuff with the phone camera - can't wait for the uber-professional camera photos. Safe Travels!

Re: Heading south

Got to withing spitting distance of the deep creek lock today. Across the river from Hampton, through Norfolk and Ports. and are now just two bridges away from the dismal swamp canal but ran out of daylight, so dropped the hook and will have a fresh start in the morning. Should make the middle if the canal in early afternoon and have the bbq lit by happy hour. :bthumb:
