Day 36 Saturday May 1 Potomac River

Oliverson's Marina Another day like yesterday.  Light wind till about 10:00AM then it picks up to about 20 miles per hour. Since it was a south wind after we turned west into the Potomac River we were sheltered by the shoreline. We stayed at Oliverson's Marina which has been in the same family for many years. It is on the Yeocomico River. Freddy Oliverson is now running the business. He loaned us his Cadillac to go for groceries. He is well known in these parts. On the way to town everyone waved at us. We are in the Northern Neck of Virginia formed by the Potomac and Rappahannock Rivers. It is very rural with big farms. Freddy has made a reservation for us for dinner tonight at Hughlett's Tavern in Heathsville. They received a couple of hundred thousand from the state to restore it so it should be pretty nice. There is no Cingular cell phone service on the boat. Freddy said if we go to the end of the next dock and walk up 3 steps we can get a signal.
