Five years on, and even further out from the economic crisis of 2008, Norfolk shows signs of a construction boom. The amount of new and not quite finished waterfront (or waterview) housing lining the Chesapeake Bay is startling. Forty years ago it was married soldier housing, according to my companion, no one wanted to live there. But with the current premium for anything waterview -- and looking east over the bay you might see ocean -- developers have taken over. At least Capitan Groovy's is still there, still going strong, still serving some of the best and most interesting seafood I've had.
