Gallery: First Trip after Retirement Part Six

After we relaxed from lunch we headed on to Portsmouth VA, it is a beautiful town located right on the water across from Norfolk Va. It was late when we arrived so we checked in to the motel, found a place to eat dinner, and then went down to the river walk and just relaxed watching the boats, and ships across the river. Our motel was located in the historic district and the homes were beautiful also the very first naval hospital was about .35 miles from our motel. The next morning we drove over to Norfolk and drove around then we went to Nauticus which is a naval museum and there was a tour boat that took you up the river and back past the Navy Base. We liked the area so much we decided to stay another night and just drive around looking it over; I do not remember how many times we went through the tunnel from Portsmouth to Norfolk and back again.
