From Eddie, another friend I have never met, a sailor of both
the Rozinante LUNA and the home-built Sootie Tern UNA,
comes a link to a video about Norfolk. You can find it here.
My wife and I have lived in the Norfolk area since the late
1980s. Back then a major newspaper described the downtown
area as looking like a bombed out WW II city. There was a
nice park and a place called Waterside, other than that it was
vacant lots, abandoned piers, "bookstores" and not much else.
Since then the city has revitalized, which is the topic of the
video. Eddie came across the clip and recognized the
sails of the yawl. It's pretty cool to show up, if only briefly,
in connection with the rebirth of a town that has been
important in my life and work for the last few decades.
Thanks, Eddie, for passing on the link.
