I received an email from my friend Adrin with the subject listed as "working....NOT!!". He was on the Norfolk waterfront this morning as I raised sail with my daughter Grace and friend Barry aboard. He was working, I was not. He was nice enough to send a couple of photographs.
We were leaving out of Waterside to watch the OpSail Parade of Sail as the tall ships left Norfolk after a great weekend. I think we had the best seats in the house, tacking back and forth as the tall ships came by us.
There were a lot of friendly greeting from the tall ships, both people I knew and people I had never met. It was fun. Even had one boat ask if we were taking part in the parade. Very nice of them to ask, but I don't think Spartina qualifies as a tall ship.
I took some photographs and should do a post, but don't know if I will have time this week. We'll see.
