FL to CT Day 32
Hampton, VA to Reedville, VA
4 days of bad weather kept us at the dock, but it did give us a lot of time to visit with our dear friends Wayne McPhail, Michelle and Mike Mazenga, Ray Montgomery… they are all such great people… always good to see them.
Today the winds had subsided enough for us to get underway… it was not ideal but doable… forecast S winds 10-15 knots with 2 foot seas. Away from the dock at 0645… Wayne was out to help us with the dock lines and say goodbye… Seas were not bad to begin with as the winds had not picked up to the full forecast but by mid-morning we had all of the forecast plus a little… ended up with 2 to 3 foot seas as we reached the Reedville area… Reedville, VA was our planned destination for the day.
We were going to a totally new location in Reedville that we have never been before… Reedville Market. It’s a restaurant on water with a dock and dine policy… Free overnight if you eat in the restaurant… looking at the menu on their website it probably would be less costly to go to a marina, but it will be nice to have dinner out.
We found their dock, which was a fixed dock with about a 100ft t-head… several smaller interior slips but we docked on the t-head… of course no water or electric… just a good strong dock and hopefully a great meal in the restaurant.
We were securely docked at Reedville Market docks at 1430... Our position is N37°50.383', W076°16.568'
. We traveled today for 8.75 hours covering 50 nautical miles averaging 6.4 knots.
