First of all, I'm having a bit of a struggle keeping up with the blogging. Too much to do, too many photos to take, process, etc. Oh well, live and learn...

Our next stop was Norfolk, Virginia. Not exactly a household name in cruise destinations. That's unfortunate, because it has turned into a wonderful port call. As you can see from the photo above, we literally docked right downtown, next to the maritime museum and the USS Wisconsin. Norfolk is undergoing a bit of a renaissance right now, with many new attractions and restaurants within blocks of the pier.

A good friend of mine was kind enough to get us not only on the Naval Base (the largest in the world), but onto the pier where the USS Eisenhower (CVN 69) and the about-to-be-commissioned Gerald R Ford (CVN 78) were both docked. Standing between these two mega-ships is awe inspiring! Thanks, John!
