reaching Norfolk

The plan of today was to reach Norfolk by early evening. To be on the save side we left Ingram Harbour at the first glimpse of sunlight - that's when the picture was taken, beautiful!
Just as beautiful as the weather the whole day. We could even lie on deck and catch some sun. After 10 hours we reached Norfolk that is bordered by the Elizabeth River and the Chesapeake Bay. And what we immediately noticed are the huge amount of military and transportation vessels right and left of the canal. Quite impressive. As we learned the world's biggest Naval Base and military alliance are located in Norfolk. But we didn't pass by that city out of military interest - here is the beginning of the ICW (Intercoastal Waterway) which means the start of our journey for the next couple of weeks! We don't really know what to expect, so we'll see.
