So hurry and enter today- It end Friday! **
We decided to get out of the house this weekend and check out a park that is about 5 mins from our apartment. So we grabbed the dog and off we went.
Little did we know when we arrived at Henricus Park that we would be traveling back in time, Colonial Time at that.
The park, which is located on the bluffs over looking the James River, has a replica Dutch and Indian Village built on it for tours.
We didn’t take a tour, but we still peered through the fence.
Wish I had out large camera instead of our small one with me instead. All well!
I took this shot over the fence of what I believe is suppose to be the hospital.
Apparently, this was the first hospital in the area so everyone from the Colonies would come here for treatment. On a sign I read, it said there were “40 beds for 80 patients.” I don’t think I would have wanted to get treated there! lol
And the best part of the trip was seeing this guy:
This gorgeous Bald Eagle flew up as we were standing looking out on the River.
He was huge flying up and actually scared me. lol I then realized it was an Eagle and we stood there for 10 or more minutes trying to get him to look down at us so I could get a picture of him.
It was amazing to actually see one out in the wild and not in some sanctuary.
He made it worth going out in the crazy heat we’ve been having!
Plus, we saved 3 turtles from getting run over, one of which already had a foot missing. 🙁
What did you do this past weekend?
