Panic, stress, fear..
In this episode James and Philippa anchor in Moorhead city, the weather turns extremely windy and thunderstorms are forecast for the night.
As the wind gets worse the yacht behind us gets pushed up against the seabed and pulls anchor.
I (Philippa) watch in horror as James had left with the dinghy to shore. I feel helpless as I cannot do anything to help. I also worry for Aequus.
We leave Moorhead city to settle in for the night before leaving around the headland to face Hatteras which neither of us are looking forward to after hearing many a bad story of Hatteras.
As we safely and gladly arrive in Norfolk we are amazed at the Naval base and how enormous it is.
We arrive in Norfolk to seawater very different from the Bahamas lol!
We take a tourist trip around the city of Norfolk and check out the famous Naval Museum and Battle ship Wisconsin, we meet two incredibly charming veterans who made our day!!
We look around the rest of the museum and find some very interesting pieces indeed!!!
Points of chat are potty talk, and we decide Aequus would look great with some gold leaf anew!!
