Our community acquired a vacant lot along the James River which was unsuitable for housing. They made it into a beach and Park. In this picture, you can see the jetty which leads a drainage ditch to the River. The beach has a sandy bottom and stays shallow (knee-deep) about 100 feet out, so its nice place for kids and dogs to romp. Frisbee is a big passtime for the older kids. We also have a gazebo and a couple of picnic tables in addition to the wide sandy beach. The neighborhood association maintains the park, and holds picnics and potlucks here a couple of times a year, bringing in local bands to entertain us.
Living by the sea is a new and fun experience for us. I've run across some wonderful vistas that are so peaceful and pretty. I'm hoping that I can start regaining more energy to drag out my tripod and camera to capture some of these beautiful scenes after chemo and radiation stop a few weeks from now. In the meantime, I'll just have to be satisfied with these random cell phone shots. I'm halfway there, Huzzah.
Until next time --
