Hey, here's a sweet guidebook to check out on Amazon or at your local bookseller. It took me almost two years, but on April 3rd the payoff arrives! What's better than a hike to a waterfall? Here are 48 of Virginia's finest.
Cool new water fountain at reedy creek lot is in and ready for humans and dogs (spigot in back). Great way to honor Greg Hawkins. @homeonthejames @rvapaddlesports @riversideoutfittersrva @repjames
#treehouse at dawn in the snow. Gorgeous but snow = delays in starting spiral staircase entrance. Is it spring's turn yet? @rvatrees @nelsontreehouse
Do we like graffiti? No. Did we giggle ever so slightly when we saw this in the #jamesriverpark? We did. @rvatrees @vintage_rva @wvp @riversideoutfittersrva @rigganrva @homeonthejames

New Virginia record striped bass

I wrote about this beast of a fish and the story behind the catch for my column in today’s Times-Dispatch. There was only room for one picture in the paper, so I figured I’d share a couple more here. The catch, by Manassas native Cary Wolfe, went 74 pounds even and was 57.75 inches long. The captain, Tim Cannon, said he and Virginia Marine Resources Commission representative Lewis Gillingham were surprised, based on the length of the fish, that it didn’t weigh more. The female only had a couple of eels in its stomach, Cannon said, despite being caught in and area loaded with menhaden, the rockfish’s preferred meal. He guessed that if she had been well fed, she might have broken the world record of 81.88 pounds set in August.
