Up The Creek

In this case, a paddle is not needed, only a camera to capture the moment. 😆

The President’s House on the College of William & Mary.
Construction began July 31, 1732. The faculty minutes say James Blair, president & founder of the school, and professors Dawson, Fry, Stith, & Fox laid "the first five Bricks in Order, one after the other.” Construction was complete in 1733.
.

All but one president of the 326 year old college lived in the brick Georgian home. Its current resident is the school’s first female president, Dr. Katherine A. Rowe.
.

During the American Revolution, it was occupied by both rebels & Redcoats during the Battle of Yorktown.. The house was damaged by fire and renovated several times before being restored to its colonial appearance in 1931. Recent work on the home has blended modern amenities while maintaining the historic appearance of the residence.
.

Four of our country's early presidents (George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison & John Tyler) were welcomed there, as well as every 20th century president from Woodrow Wilson to Dwight D. Eisenhower. Foreign visitors have included the Marquis de Lafayette, Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, Winston Churchill, and Charles, the Prince of Wales.
.

Fun and random: At a luncheon I attended last year, outgoing President Dr. Taylor Reveley commented the house had a ghost or two.
.

Both the William & Mary and Colonial Williamsburg websites have additional information on the President’s house. (Nothing about ghosts, sorry.) Important to note this is a private residence, not an exhibition site. I’d feel awful if Dr. Rowe started receiving eager visitors on her doorstep asking about tours or ghosts they learned about from some candle gal on Instagram. (Facepalm).

Thanks for reading if you made it this far. Best part of my history lessons? No tests! 📸: 12/12/18.

Is it even possible to go wrong with bacon-wrapped scallops? 🥓
According to @boathouse_va (and we agree) the answer is no.
The Boathouse menu offers coastal elements and a number of locally sourced ingredients. Find them at multiple locations in the Richmond area including Short Pump, Midlothian, and Hopewell. #vafoodie 📷: @boathouse_va

📷 and quote by Angie of @bridgefieldcottage
🏡
“I wanted to share with you a pic of our church. It is so beautiful and only about 5 minutes from our house and full of history! I was married here almost 18 years ago. My husband has been going to this church his entire life as well as most of his family (he is one of 12 and he and his twin sister are number 11 and 12 😳) and most of them have played softball for the church. Lots of memories!!”

History provided by Enon Church: A community of Christ followers:
Enon United Methodist Church has a rich history. Located on Studley Road in Hanover County, the church was established on land donated by John Haw in 1837. Early records indicate the church was part of a 13 church charge, serviced by a circuit rider. The sanctuary in use today was built in 1880. A major cavalry battle of the Civil War took place around the church in 1864. Twenty-seven or more unknown Confederate soldiers are buried in the church yard.
✤✤✤✤✤✤✤✤✤✤✤✤
Studley, Virginia, located in Hanover County, is 12 miles northeast of Richmond. The great American statesman and orator Patrick Henry was born here in 1736 in a farmhouse called “Studley.” The family home was destroyed by fire in 1807, but visitors can still see the archaeological remains. 🇺🇸
American history lovers could spend weeks and probably not exhaust the historical tourism offered in the area. But if history is not your thing, outdoor adventure abounds. If a slower pace is want you want, then drive the beautiful roads and shop and dine in the charming historic towns. 🌿

🤔 How long would it take to count every stalactite in the Caverns? Probably long enough for new ones to form. We love seeing what you discovered @murpc19. Don’t forget to tag your photos #DiscoveryADay for your chance to be featured! .

Temperature in a photo is HUGE deal to me. I don’t mean literally how hot or cold it was outside when we shot it; I mean how warm the tones are. Most editing apps offer a “temperature” slider now, to include here on Insta! I typically like my photos to have a warm, inviting feel, even if it was 40 degrees outside at the time of shooting 🥶 have you experimented with the temperature adjustments in your photos?

The Battle of the Crater was a battle of the Civil War, part of the Siege of Petersburg and the Richmond-Petersburg Campaign, fought between June 1864 and march 1865. Petersburg was an important goal for both armies: four railroad lines met there before continuing on to Richmond, and most of the Confederate Army's supplies funneled through there. Today you can see the crater caused by the mine explosion as well as the e trance to the mine.
