Touring Portsmouth, VA

Today we rode our bikes into Portsmouth, which is not very far from the marina.  We had our bikes adjusted by a professional at a bike shop in town.  Money well spent, as they will be our mode of transportation on this trip.  While there, we went to the Lightship museum. A lightship is a ship that is designed to function as a lighthhouse and it can be moved wherever it is needed. We also went to the Portsmouth Naval Museum which presented a lot of history from this area.  We are glad we’ve had the opportunity to tour this historic area.  Our country was settled from here and though I personally have never been a history buff, I still find it all fascinating. 

Tonight we are going to the Commodore Theatre for dinner and a show.  We will walk there and back.  I asked the young man who worked on our bikes if the area was safe to be walking around after dark, and he assured me it was. 

Tomorrow we will be doing laundry at the marina’s laundry (always fun when you live on a boat.)  I asked a lady one time at the laundromat in Annapolis if she thought there was anything worse than doing laundry and her reply was, “Yes, not being able to do laundry.”  Her comment made me stop and think, how fortunate we are and how we take such mundane tasks for granted. Yeah!!!! I get to do laundry tomorrow!!!!

 Oh Yeah, HOW ABOUT THEM COLTS!  We watched the game on the big screen TV at the restuarant in the marina. We were the only ones rooting for them, but we showed them all in the end, didn’t we?
