At the very top of the Chesapeake is a canal that runs across to Delaware Bay. It was an interesting passage through the canal and some pictures are included here.
The other pictures are from Cape May itself. Cape May is a summer vacation town at the very southern end of "the Jersey Shore". Very nice, lots of older restored homes, etc. A couple pictures from our bike ride that afternoon are included.
Sorry about the lack of posts recently, we've been unable to pick up wireless internet. Annapolis was a great spot two nights ago. The town is full of excitement regarding the graduation of the senior class this friday, and a real highlight for us was watcing the Blue Angels perform as we left the harbor!! Only four plans though. I remembber five in previous shows?? Could be that they are still in the process of replacing the pilot that died in the recent crash??

Naval Station Norfolk, in Norfolk, Virginia, is a base of the United States Navy, supporting naval forces operating in the Atlantic Ocean, Mediterranean Sea, and Indian Ocean.
NS Norfolk, also known as the Norfolk Navy Base, occupies about 4,300 acres (17 km²) of Hampton Roads real estate in a peninsula known as Sewell's Point. It is the world's largest Naval Station; in fact, based on supported military population, it is the largest naval installation/base in the world. When the 75 ships and 134 aircraft homeported here are not at sea, they are along side one of the 13 piers or inside one of the 11 aircraft hangars for repair, refit, training and to provide the ship's or squadron's crew an opportunity to be with their families. NS Norfolk is homeport to aircraft carriers, cruisers, destroyers, large amphibious ships, submarines, a variety of supply and logistics ships, C-2 Greyhound, C-9 Skytrain II, C-12 Huron and E-2 Hawkeye fixed wing aircraft, and H-3 Sea King, CH-46 Sea Knight, CH-53 Sea Stallion, and SH-60 Seahawk helicopters.

The boat behind us is 95' long, there were two others about that long and then the remainder of the dock was absolutely full with other misc. boats.
These guys have a great business going!!

The mechanics told me that pieces litterally "fell out" when they opened up the unit in the shop. Multiple gears and bearings are ruined and at least one axle is bent. So...they need to replace the entire rear wheel assembly. And....they can't get a new one for a week!!
It's either work a trade in deal for the car here and leave driving a new one. Or fly home and come back in a week to finish the trip after a $3,000 repair!
So...I limped to the parking lot of a Marriot across the street from the local GM dealer hoping that I've not totally ruined the car.
Will be an interesting day....
