22 June 2013 –   First off I have to say this no schedule idea/ thing takes some getting used to… but we finally departed Tidewater Marina Portsmouth, VA at 0925 on our adventure cruising the Great Loop.  The odyssey begins.

We went out with the tide at about 8 MPH… the weather on the Chesapeake was a little choppy for the first couple of hours but things calmed down and we arrived at Dozier’s Marina in Deltaville at 5:00 PM… about a 65 mile trip.  All systems run well, no casualties –
 auto pilot is most excellent.
 Yes... Tamera brought her sewing machine
 Wolf Trap light - check out the outhouse on the left, that's a real outhouse
As we approached the slip we were greeted by David Hoyt the Dock Master who assisted getting us situated, great marina, beautiful facilities, and friendly people.  And they let us uses this cool battle wagon - the "Road Master".
