Virginia Barrier Islands

We had a few days off and I finally got to spend some time on the Virginia Eastern Shore Barrier Islands.  I took the Avon RIB off of our catamaran and strapped it to the back of the pickup.  We got four great days in Cape Charles and I got some great videos of the islands.

I spent the first day on Little Cobb Island.  The island looked as if no one hand been ashore since last summer.  The second day, Dora and I went to Skidmoore Island and Smith Island (the Virginia, not Maryland Smith Island).

We found a four foot Bull shark dead on the beach, followed dolphins, and collected shells.

We also spent some time with Mark and Elizabeth's kids who are wonderfully bright and fun to have adventures with.  I think I may have committed myself to teach them how to make a saltwater aquarium.

We left the Avon down there for the next trip. [Did I mention we pick up our new AB RIB this Saturday?]
