Survived a wild ride down the bay. Some of the roughest conditions we have experienced on the Chesapeake. Big waves. 30+ kt winds and lots of driving rain. Enjoyed our new cockpit enclosures as well as the heater we installed below. The AIS system which allowed us to identify ships during the night was a big help.
Navy ships don't use AIS so we slowed to enter Hampton Roads after sunrise. Still, with heavy ...
... As we approached Virginia Beach we were buzzed by FA 18's fighter jets overhead! We soon found out we were camped near the Navel Air Station Oceana, the only Jet Base on the East Coast. We were serenaded with their daily training flights - or the sound of freedom! One night we had helicopters (I think) overhead until 1:30am YES in the middle of the night! They seem to be doing circuits for hours & hours. Needless to say we were not thrilled ...

... we went to the local hot spot bar to hangout and wait for Kristina. We played a corn hole competition and floated around just having a lovely time. Towards the end we ended up outside on that lovely night, waiting for Dipan's dad to pick us up (we were being responsible). That night we crashed hard.

... I raced on the speed course. We got 6 minutes of racing, which is about 10 laps around the course. Eric had the fastest times out of our three with Justin in close second. I was 2 to 3 seconds slower on all but the first lap.
We returned home to a delicious dinner of pulled pork sandwiches and then settled down to watch the new Jack Ryan movie. A great day with the family.
Life is good.
