Back on the Chesapeake to Cape Charles, VA
Sunday, June 27, 2009 Island Hopper left the marina at 10:50 AM for a two hour run of 32 miles to Cape Charles, VA. The winds were North 10 -15 and the s1 to 2. Island Hopper traveled smoothly again, making for an enjoyable voyage. Cape Charles, established in the early 1880s as a railroad ferry junction, quieted down considerably after its heyday, but in the past few years the isolation has begun to attract people farther and farther away. The town holds one of the largest concentrations of late-Victorian and turn of the century buildings in the region. Clean, uncrowded public beaches beckon, as do a marina, and renowned golf course.
Island Hopper docked at Bay Creek Marina. (http://www.baycreek.net/) The marina is beautiful and new. It has shops and two restaurants. The crew rented a golf cart to explore the town. The town district has restaurants and a few shops. One attraction is a train ride dinner cruise.
Downtown Cape Charles
Tonight is dinner is at Aqua Restaurant. Great seafood is anticipated and welcomed!
