Went down to the Norfolk waterfront this morning with my daughter. We were on foot, not on the boat, and I'm glad of that as I just saw some lightning outside the window. There were a handful of tall ships around, including the Sultana which was arriving from a visit to Cape Charles on the other side of the Bay.
The old Grand Banks barkentine Gazela out of Philadelphia was leaving from the Otter Berth with a few deafening blasts of her horn. She took part over the weekend in the Harborfest event.
And the Schooner Virginia, who just returned from a winter down south, will be hanging around the Norfolk waterfront for much of the summer. I can't wait to sail alongside of her.
ps - I just heard some more thunder. Local radar shows a series of severe thunderstorms coming our way. And we are under a tornado watch. Yes, I'm glad we visited the ships on foot.
