Sunset over Chesapeake Bay Area ...
December 23, 2016 11:56pm CST
We took a break from all the christmas preparations and drove down to Newport news, VA, which is on the James river, and I thought it was part of the chesapeake bay area, but..., when I looked it up on google, to check my spelling, i'm not sure it is part of Chesapeake Bay, but that's where we went. We had a walk around the Mariners Museum, which was very interesting, then we had a drink, and returned to the car. The museum is situated in quite a large park area, on the james river, and its very picturesque, so we drove round the park in the car and along river view drive, which, as the title suggests, gives you glimpses of the river. About half way round there was a parking area, with a good observation area to see the river, so we parked up and took some photos, and then we noticed, that there were quite a few other people about with cameras too, and I said to one of them, beautiful isn't it, he said ..., "sure is, but you ain't seen nothing yet, its nearly sunset", he said, "now that's really awesome", and he was right, it was, beautiful, so then we took loads more photos, I took 58, in all, but have put a few of my favourites in a collage, as the post photo, so you can enjoy it too...

My mother's side of the family was from the Eastern Shore of Maryland...my parents owned a summer home on the Chesapeake Bay for many years. Newport News, VA isn't on the bay but it might be considered part of the Chesapeake Bay watershed, but I'm not certain of that. You are really getting around, glad you're having fun.

You were very close to the James River Plantations which really are worth a visit and of course Yorktown and Jamestown. Merry Christmas Susan and enjoy your time in the US. When are you headed back to Spain? Love your photos of course.
