Friday’s Hunt v2.22

Friday’s Hunt

Wow, the past week zoomed by at an even higher rate of speed than expected. I don’t want to miss Friday’s Hunt, so I’d better get a move on. This week we’re looking for Starts with V, Week’s Favorite,  and Thankful.

Doing something different for the first prompt, the tree, brought to you by the letter “V.”

My Week’s Favorite can also be found overhead.

Thankful. So many reasons, but to narrow the field to a few, I’m thankful for this peaceful slice of sun-dappled green space on the outskirts of the city.

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and survived the Black Friday shopping madness. I avoided it (shopping) this year, and spent time with family–another thing for which to be thankful–hubby’s employer instituted a new policy this year, closing the day after the holiday. We greatly appreciate it.

A New Park in the Making

A New Park
with Good Fences!

The city of Virginia Beach sent their Outdoors Newsletter today, encouraging us to stop couch surfing and get outside! They listed new places to explore, so I didn’t waste any time. Right after lunch with hubby…and a short jaunt to the Apple store…I stopped at the Lake Lawson/Lake Smith Natural Area.

It’s a 42-acre preserve with over 12,000 feet of shoreline. It offers fishing, kayaking, a boat ramp, picnic shelter, playground, paved and soft trails for walking. Fencing is in place to stabilize the shore to prevent erosion and re-establish native vegetation. Lots of good fences! 

Click on any photo to bring up a slide show, mouse over for captions. Thanks for stopping by. I’ll keep you updated on the progress, as I intend to visit again.
