Cruising the Riverside Trail

Cruised the Great Ship Lock Park/Rocketts Landing portion of the Virginia Capital Trail recently. It’s particularly pleasant at this pre-launch stage of public awareness. Wonder what the trail etiquette will be when the panting pelotons compete with the cruising family units for access.

A tremendous amount of riverside development awaits.

Technology meets tranquility where the Trail truncates at the Flood Wall.

Number one son was married recently. Here are a few images from a grand wedding weekend. The iPhone 5s couldn’t render the actual beauty of the subjects or the setting. Real wedding photography by Pat Cori to come soon.

In Love with the Unpainted Aristocracy

Cottages in the Nags Head Cottage Row Historic District can be traced back to the mid-1800s. Most of the cottages began as shacks constructed from flotsam (planks and timbers salvaged from shipwrecks).
