As we left Norfolk we noted the coal offloading docks. Coal is shipped from WVa to Norfolk and loaded on ships to the far east, a billion dollar business.
Love these lighthouses, now abandoned in the Chesapeake.
Island Hopper has been berthed in the Longboat Key Marina, Longboat Key, Florida since October 2009. The current travel plan is to take her to Montreal, Canada for the summer of 2012. She will be berthed in Brewerton, NY for the winter and put back in the water in late spring 2013.
