Memories of My Visit to the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge ~ 9-6-11

This was my world last week....The Back Bay National Wildlife Preserve at Virginia Beach, Virginia. We lost 3 days of our week’s vacation due to Irene, but the other 4 were filled with wonderful trips to the refuge and fun times with my family.

  8. A wonderful place to spend lots of time in, especially in a camera and a kayak.

    It is always good to make the best of things even if the weather robs you of a few days.

  14. It would be difficult to stay feeling stressed with this serene scene to meditate on for a while. Your photo processing makes it look like a painting. Hope you're feeling fine, Genie.
