Creek off Western Branch of the Elizabeth River

I was on the way home from getting some groceries to cook for dinner when I saw this scene.  It is from Dock Landing Road in the Western Branch of Chesapeake VA and near my house.  I kenw then that it was going to be a great evening.


Pusher Tug “Savannah”

I was at work and this tug got im my way.  I then took advantage of the situation and took a photo.  The evening light looked cool and the scene came out as good as I saw it.  (Taken at Lynnhaven Inlet, Virginia Beach, VA)

The Inlet – Weather moving in

I took this 2 nights ago at work – the weather was moving in.  We had a cold front come in and had heavy winds and seas and the boats and crews worked hard for a few days and nights.  I am glad to be off now for a few days and and working on a Chicken and Sausage Gumbo and am going to kick back.  Wishing you fair winds and following seas.

Best Regards

Rainbow Lynnhaven Inlet

I took these 2 images while at work at Lynnhaven Inlet today – Thur Oct 13, 2011 around 6:30 PM.  The boats are Pilot Boats.  The rain was moving through and the rainbow was awesome.   I wished I could get to a better vantage point to get more of it – but had to settle for what I could capture.  It was a great one to see.
