June 19, 2014  Day 53  Chesapeake Bay!
Dozier’s Regatta Point Marina
Deltaville, VA 

We enjoyed anchoring on the Piankatank so much that we spent three nights there! We took a leisurely dinghy ride on Monday going further up the river. We only saw three boats and one jet ski – hooray for Mondays!  Tuesday was very hot and we stayed on board and relaxed.  Unfortunately our generator quit working that night and we knew we had to head to a marina the next morning.

We arrived at Dozier’s before noon on Wednesday and got quickly tied up on a long face dock and connected to power.  We were facing 97 degrees and needed to run our air conditioner! After we got settled, we borrowed one of the courtesy cars to go to West Marine and to a grocery store.

We also saw Mike and Lois on Inch-n Along (we met them at Ortega Landing).  They invited us for docktails and dinner on their boat along with Loopers, Gerry and Julie on R Island. We had a wonderful evening sharing boating stories.  We hope to see them again as they will also spend their summer on the bay.

Today (Thursday), Bill worked on trouble shooting generator issues, and removed a broken impeller.  Joyce went back to the grocery store and to a farmers market, and then did laundry in the afternoon.  We had a series of very strong storms this afternoon and early evening complete with high winds, hail, rain, and lightning.

We will stay here one more day and hopefully get the impeller for the generator. We cannot anchor out without it!
