Saturday drive to Colonial Beach

The following three pictures are taken by my daughter - Annette
colonial beach , VA - 9.21.2013

nap time
 the tree that looks like camouflage ,   leaves are turning too.
peeling bark is so pretty

 primping,  and one stray that is hurriedly walking by

overcast and ready for rain

checking out shops

Like this one


Steve purchased local art on oyster shells

I got the lighthouse and Annette got a seagull painted on one.

pretty fall plantings in the town

mums totally covered in blooms

Cottages in town

white planters with red and white petunias and geraniums - very showy

I like seeing the different decorations in the yards
Alexander G. Bell  house
Looking ahead to the view to the river.
I am sure these hibiscus must be in pots in the ground,  I never could get mine to live in this climate all year.

very weathered detail on the town hall building

stained glass above a window on town hall bldg.

Steve enjoying the quiet  on the dock

Was a nice relaxing day spent and much needed after the past month with many twists and turns.


  1. Looks like a nice trip Betsy. Your so lucky to be able to go to the beach so often. I really like the duck photo with the seagull passing through, that's funny. And those houses are so pretty.
    Have a great rest of your day,

  2. oh i enjoyed these! i especially loved the peeling paint and the glass on the town hall building. we haven't been to colonial beach yet, need to visit!
