We have arrived in Cape Charles! Docking just before noon, the crew is excited to be able to set foot on dry land once more… mostly for laundry, a solid wifi signal and a cold drink. The Starboard watch has been stood down and is even now roaming about town, no doubt looking also for the best ice cream shop. It’ll be Port watch’s turn tomorrow.
