Our Farewell Party

May 12, 2012  Day 1  “Congratulations!  Today is your day.  You’re off to great places! You’re off and away!”…“And will you succeed?  Yes! You will indeed! (98 and ¾ percent guaranteed)” Dr. Seuss, “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!”

 Ready to depart on the Loop from Yorktown, VA
We were so fortunate to have almost 50 friends join us for a fabulous farewell party at Riverwalk Landing in Yorktown, VA.  Following lunch and tours of our boat we departed with their good wishes.  We left Yorktown and headed for Doziers Regatta Point Yachting Center in Deltaville, VA on the Rappahannock River off the Chesapeake Bay.  Many other Loopers were already there and we joined them for a cookout.  This completed our first day on the Great Loop!
