  1. Oar Knot is heading to Norfolk tomorrow (stopping short of the lock in Cheasapeake VA tonight) how far ahead are you now? Any suggestions for restaurants or fun while in Norfolk? We are going to Waterside marina too

    1. You won’t have a problem finding places to eat at Waterside. They are everywhere, and plenty right at the marina. We ate at Smokehouse and Stripers (pricy), both good, also pizza in the food court wasn’t bad. We are in Cambridge, MD for one more day, on to St. Michael’s tomorrow (weather permitting).
