Yet another trip...

Nana and I have just returned from yet another trip, this time to the coast and some delicious seafood.

We stayed in Irvington, VA at the Tides Inn. Located in the southern portion of the northern neck on the Rappahannock River, Irvington is in "King" Carter country.

We did, of course, visit local museums. The Steamboat Era Museum is small but gives a good overview of the steamboat culture. Linked to that is the Fishermen's Museum in Reedville, VA which we had previously visited. We also went to Christ Church and saw their newly renovated displays and "toured" the church.

We ate at Lee's Restaurant in Kilmarnock, the Crazy Crab in Reedville and tried to get to Cockrell's Crab House (just outside of Reedville).

Everything we went to is within easy driving distance of Irvington. The whole northern neck is an easy 2 hrs drive from either D.C. or Richmond. A great place to visit.
