LITTLE CREEK, VA TO GREAT BRIDGE, VA
After many years of dreaming, we finally set sail today for Florida, the Bahamas and beyond. Since I am known in my family as the dreamer, it’s fitting the boat I found for our adventure is named “Reverie”, which is defined as “a dreamlike state”. That’s me.
I always imagined the day we would leave would be picture perfect, after all the planning and preparation we had done, but it was cloudy and spitting rain, with winds blowing 15-20 knots in the bay. Then the engine kept cutting out. So we just put up the jib and sailed through downtown Norfolk, all the way to Great Bridge. We will continue tomorrow or when the engine issue is fixed.
