Default Greetings From Rudy Inlet

The Admiral and I are visiting her parents in Norfolk. I let slip to our daughter that the fridge is full so I'm sure the house will be well watched by her and her kids until it's empty!

We've been to her sister's in Wilmington a few time and I thought when we blew through there yesterday the trip, was almost over. Nope. I now know how long it takes to run the DelMarVa penninsula. We left early enough to get most of the trip in daylight. I like cruising back-roads so we followed F-I-L's advice to go down 113 most of the way. Saw a lot of nice boats in folks' front yards.

Our trip home will be by way of the Cape May ferry and we expect to meet lots of other nice folks too!

If we get any interesting pic's I will add them in later.

"Greetings From Rudy Inlet"

If you get a chance, make your way over to Rudee Inlet, excellent striper fishing from there. Here's a good link http://virginiafishing.com/

Thanks Dave. Probably the only 'boat' we'll get to besides the ferry will be the battleship Wisconsin.

Ahem, Its Rudee.

The Wisconsin is always a cool thing to see, if you get the chance go on the Victory Rover, they do 2-3 hour tours to the Navy Base and back with a good narration.

Its tied up on the seawall next to Nauticus or over at Waterside Marina.

I started to update this Tuesday but had connection issues...

We wanted to do the "Wisky" tour, and Nauticus, on Monday but that's their day off. We did the VA Aquarium instead. We went back Tuesday and got combo tickets for the harbor tour and Nauticus/Wisconson access. I enjoyed it all but towards the end of the day I learned there was a guided tour of the Wisconsin for an additional cost that would have gotten me further into the ship. If I'd known when we bought the tickets (did not see a sign and clerk did not mention it) I would have bought it. As it was, the wife was getting tired (walking disability) and I hate to just 'dump' her when she's out of steam.

If you get the gangways pics ($20) you get 20% off your most expensive purchase at the gift shop. Among other things, I got the wife some dog-tags to use as bag tags. I was a little surprised to see her wearing them. She says it's the only jewelry I've bought lately her that didn't come with a gum-ball...

Wednesday the old-lady had some errands to run so I walked around the RUDEE Inlet neighborhood. I was disapointed that the marina docks were all posted but I understand that not everybody wanderring around is honest. I found a couple nice looking restaraunts down there that we may try on our next trip.

Of course we spent a few hours each day with her folks since that was the main reason for the trip.

Today we are heading towards A/C to visit some friends before heading home tomorrow. We're going to take the Cape May Ferry for the trip over to Jersey. I hope it's not too rough! lol

That's all for now. Thanks for your interest!
