Doziers Regatta Point

We are at Doziers Regatta Point Marina (Publishers of the Waterway Guide series of books) waiting for the winds to drop some as we don't really want to head out onto the bay with 30 knot winds forcasted. It is a nice marina, but if the wind is out of the north the winds and waves come right in the entrance channel and really rock the boats. We used the courtesy car today to go to West Marine, True Value Hardware, and the Grocery store. I did a couple of boat projects today, replaced the old 3 strand anchor line backing my chain rode with the new anchor brait that doesn't take up as much room in the anchor locker, and put depth markers on the chain and rode. We will see what the winds are tomorrow AM and hopefully we will head out for Hampton Virgina as we have a coupon for a Free night of dockage at the city Docks. After Hampton we will head for the Dismal Swamp Canal and on to Elizabeth City.

Tidewater marina, Portsmouth, Va., ICW mile marker "0", has a decent restaurant if you stop there.

Elizabeth city is wonderful. Pat & I love "The Oyster Bar" one of their main attractions.

Be safe....John & Pat
