Norfolk Va and the AGLCA rendevous

It has been a bit more than a week since my last post,  I have tried but the WiFi here at the Waterside Marina has not been great for loading pic.  So here goes, I will try to load in some pictures again later this evening.
So for the last week we have been at the Waterside Marina in Norfolk with more than 40 boats and 200 members that are here for the rendevous for the America's Great Loop Cruisers Association
These rendevous are held twice a year and are extremely informative and a great social event for the members to share their stories and experiences of what its like to travel America's Great Loop.

 The Great Loop is the continuous waterway that encompasses the eastern portion of North America including the Atlantic and Gulf Intracoastal Waterways, the Great Lakes, the Canadian Heritage Canals, and the inland rivers of America's heartland.

It is also known as the Great Circle Route and is considered one of the safest long distance cruising routes in the world. To travel all, a portion, or any of the magnificent side trips of the Great Loop is an adventure of a lifetime.

Its great to see that you are having a great time at the rendevous. We loved Waterside Marina in Norfolk. Unlike you guys we have not been on our boat since we came back. The weather has just been yucky on the weekends.
