Chesapeake Bay

We got up early being rewarded by spectacular lights of the rising sun. It was simply breathtaking and we were staring into the flames of the morning in awe. The Chesapeake was quieter than ever and in this moment I realized why some people buy cottages. Not every one can just drop everything, buy an old boat and go cruising like we did.

I was a bit nervous sailing without the charts and we still had couple of days before Norfolk where we pick up with ICW for which charts were provided to us so kindly by Neal. They were older chart kits for ICW from Norfolk to Jacksonville, Florida. Neal got them some years ago from his friend who passed away and Neal was sure the guy didn't need them anymore. I said if his deceased friend asks for them I'll be more then happy to return them to him. Neal said he would direct him to me with no delay in such case.

Anyhow, I need to tell you how I navigated today because it is just priceless. I know someone who is a sailor may read this some day and shake his head. All I want to share here is that we end up anchoring after day of sailing in a most beautiful place you could possibly imagine. We were in Virginia already and this was the next river south of Rappahannock River in the vicinity of Deltaville. Too bad my CAA atlas didn't name this river. I want to come back there one day if I come back from this adventure in one piece.
