Deltaville VA to Solomons Island MD
We were wondering about this ship off in the distance, come to find out it is used for training exercises for the military. Which means they bomb it!
It was a beautiful day on the Chesapeake Bay our 60 mile trip from Deltaville to Solomon Harbor Marina was about as smooth as it gets on the Bay. It was a bit cool in the morning starting out but we slowly started to shed clothes as the day went on, by the time we reached our destination it was shorts and sleeveless once again. We chose this marina because our new looper friends Capt. Chappy and Twyla on Nauti Nell were here. They were our week long dockmates at Norfolk and are from Joplin MO. Once tied to the dock, boat washed it was time for cocktails, a dinghy ride in the harbor with Mike and Twyla and dinner at Boomerang's. This marina is part of the Holiday Inn and they had an outdoor bar with entertainment that we could enjoy from our boat the woman singing was fantastic and the drinks aboard were cheap.
