    Anchor next to the expressway for a quiet night

    by grandmaR Written Dec 28, 2003

    The northern end of the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel has created a broad stretch of quiet water removed from the danger of big ship traffic.

    Locals refer to this area as Mill Creek, but actually Mill Creek is a VERY small shallow creek beyond the fixed low level bridge to Old Point Comfort

    Equipment: Don't anchor where the workboats tie up on the northeast most corner.

    You can watch fireworks from here on the fourth of July.
