Yesterday we bid farewell to Dan's parents, who arrived late last week and spent the weekend here in Richmond. In between a little house shopping (for them, not us!) and a lot of take-out (I don't think we cooked all weekend!), we headed down to Belle Isle for a little hike on Sunday. It was all of our first visit to this gem of the James River park system. Time and temperaments were limited, so we didn't get to find a good spot to dabble our toes in the water, but I'm hoping for more adventures later. Highlights:
Panoramic views of the river, and glimpses of the ways other people enjoy it, like sunbathers, kayakers, rafters, and remnants of a rock arrangement.
All in all, a great Richmondy summer day. I totally want to go back for more exploring (and will probably go alone some time just for photos). Want more picss? Take a look at the Belle Isle set I put together on Flickr.
