We had so much fun in Hampton VA!! The warn weather, sunny skies, bike rides and LOTS of laughter! Satori ( Jeff & Brenda) and Tranquillity III (Mike & Karen) have really been so much fun to travel with...we just laugh all the time! SUPER FUN!

What a FANTASTIC past few days in Deltaville VA! Deltaville Marina and Curtis Stokes YachtBrokers have sponsored a 2 day planning event for Loopers. We have received planning/navigation advice on cruising the Chesapeake Bay, the Great Lakes, adapting your boat for safety/physical challenges and the ever-present do-it-yourself engine maintenance! What a marvelous time with very timely information. So worth the commitment to stop and participate!
And Deltaville…what a fantastic little town! Brenda, Karen & I borrowed the loaner car on Thursday afternoon for a couple hours. We had the best adventure touring the farmlands and neighborhoods of Deltaville…such a friendly and hospitable community – made me homesick, just a little!
But the weather…!!!!! YIKES!!!!! High winds, heavy rain, thunderstorms, tornado warnings and DROPPING temps!!! BRRRR….we pulled out long sleeved t shirts, jackets, and extra blanket on the bed… YEP, we have officially “out-traveled” the spring/summer-like temps. We need to sit tight for a few days & hope the warm weather inches north! Ha ha!!! FYI: due to the bad weather our phones & camera have been "protected" on the boat...so I have no cloudy/stormy photos to share!
The Bay is still rolling a little angry and the weather forecast doesn’t show a calm day until Wednesday…but some of our looping buddies are saying that Sunday “might be doable”. Hmmmm….I haven’t been very successful with “doable” travel days…stay tuned!
Have a SUPER weekend!!
