Reflections of a Small Town
We strolled around CaryTown, had lunch at Can Can and snapped photos of a Chalk Art event that was taking place. We saw lots of interesting people and Phoebe showed us some of her favorite places.

As the sun was setting on our first day in Richmond, we took a quick walk along the Pipeline. I will definitely have to come back and do more of that...what a cool thing, to walk on a metal pipe just slightly above the muddy waters of the James River.
Fishin' for Dinner at Sunset
Our second day in Richmond was spent at Hollywood Cemetery, a vast valley of the dead that sits high on a hill overlooking the city and the James River. It houses two US Presidents and is filled with twisted iron, sulking trees, cobwebbed tombs that house souls long forgotten. Unfortunately for me I spent the entire day, from morn until late eve with a migraine. Of course, I wasn't going to sit in the room so out I ventured with the girls and just dealt with it the best I could.

Beyond the Shadowed Lands
It was a excellent location to play Make-Believe and don some of Phoebe's famous masks:

I found some time to just sit and relax and watch a Swallowtail flutter, a river flow and a train roll by:

Richmond is full of interesting homes, history, people and culture. It was a great place to spend some time with friends.
