Norfolk to Great Bridge

We motored down from old port comfort in Norfolk on the ICW through the Virginia Cut to Great Bridge, the site of a 1775 battle where Lord Dunmore was sacked and sent packing, home to England by the colonists.
The Atlantic Yacht Basin  here does a lot of beautiful work on old wooden boats.
We did pass by the USS  Eisenhower, the first of the Nimitz class carriers on the way through Norfolk Naval Base.
 We are on the way south and hopefully be at Coinjock soon to enjoy their infamous prime rib steaks.
