This week has swung wildly between mid-winter and late spring: an ice storm one day; mid-70's the next day and the day after; back into a deep freeze today. But on one of those mid-70's days, I took advantage of the weather to take a four mile walk at lunch time. I had to go over an hour to have time to walk, explore a bit on Belle Isle in the James River, and eat lunch on the rocks as the mighty James roared by a few feet away. Did I want to go back to work? Hell, no! But I did. And since Blogger has fixed the problem with photo uploads, I shall share a few photos of my all too short lunch break.
Looking this way (to the south) there is no doubt one is near a big city with the view of the Robert E. Lee Bridge and downtown Richmond. Turn 180 degrees, and the view suggests you are nowhere near an urban area.
