I drove to Richmond yesterday to meet up with Stephanie for the first time since her return from her teaching stint in France. It was wonderful visiting with her and catching up face-to-face. We ate at Kuba, Kuba, one of my favorite Richmond restaurants, then walked around the Fan District for a bit. The traffic on I64 was terrible but that's pretty normal for a summer Saturday.
I have been walking on the weekends, although not on the beach for some reason. Instead, I've been driving to nearby neighborhoods and parking the car, so I can explore new places. I spotted this heron on my walk last Sunday, in the neighborhood near the Hermitage Museum. Norfolk has a lot of wetland areas, which makes the scenery more interesting, I think.
I need to stay home and catch up on the yard work as I've been "running the roads" too much, as my mother-in-law used to say, but I guess the weeds will wait for me.
