A calm and sunny day to continue on to Tidewater Marina in Portsmouth VA where we can provision and get ready for our 3 day sail to NYC. Stopped for fuel at the Atlantic Yacht Basin while we waited for the Great Bridge bridge and Great Bridge lock to open. Arrived at Tidewater about 1pm.
As Portsmouth is just south of Norfolk an enormous US Navy
base the Elizabeth River has several large ship repair yards. This section is all very industrial, some of it now derelict.
Weather window looks like we’ll have to wait until Monday April 4th so we had a good amount of time to provision and do some dining off the boat. Portsmouth is a charming historic town.
