After taking care of the boat yesterday, Lori and I walked around historic Portsmouth. This place is rich with history, homes dating back to the 1700s.
I haven’t talked much about the heat here, but it has been brutally hot and humid for the last two weeks. The east coast is covered with heat advisories. So, while we walked around town, the streets were deserted. The only other folks we ran into were cruisers from another sailboat we passed yesterday. No matter, it was fun to get out and walk around. And last night a front blew through, bringing cooler temps (and rain).
Today we took a foot ferry across the Elizabeth River to Norfolk.
We toured the Nauticus Museum and the USS Wisconsin that is on display there.
This ship played important roles in WWII, the Korean War, and Desert Storm. Amazing; six decades of service.
I am headed back home today. Thanks for the adventure, Lori!
