First Arrival on the Horizon

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

There were two parades of ships for OpSail 2012; the first was to be of modern naval vessels. I went the evening before to see if any of these ships were present yet. From my first vantage point, I could not see any warships, but after walking along the beach to the east for a short distance I noticed a sailing vessel almost on the horizon. If you follow the line of the tire tracks in this view to the NE out over the water, she is between the two of the anchored empty tankers (There are almost always at least a couple these awaiting their next voyage at this location.), just coming into Lynnhaven Roads. The Lynnhaven Fishing Pier is also visible on the horizon seemingly projecting from the dunes at the right of the photo.
