Hampton, VA City Docks

Had a good sail 2/3 of the way to Hampton and then the winds shifted to right on the nose but we still got to the City Docks on the Hampton River around 4:30. This is the marina that the "Caribbean 1500" leaves from. There is a small Anchorage right across the river from us and right now it is not too crowded. There is a coffee shop right out front of the Marina and many restaurants about a block away. Since we had the coupon for the free dock we treated ourselves to Dinner at "The Taphouse" , we had a great meal, desert, wine and hard cider. On the way back to the boat Chris saw a Quilt shop, but they were closed and will not be open on Monday either so she missed out on some shopping. Tomorrow we will officially be on the Atlantic Intercoastal Waterway, which starts at mile "0" in Norfolk. I will reset my trip odometer and set it for statute miles as that is how they measure the mileposts.
