During the Christmas and New Year holidays along with wonderful visits with family and friends, we’ve had several gorgeous days that were warm with gentle breezes that literally pulled you outside. We couldn’t wait to walk around the neighborhood. Jetty’s Reach has roads that are wide and not heavily travelled and they’re great for bike riding or walking. Plus the Kohl’s Island Reserve is just about a quarter mile from our house and has a beach that is several miles long and great to walk on if you’re so inclined. I absolutely LOVE spending time there looking for washed up treasures on the beach. The reserve is part of the Virginia Outdoors Foundation (VOF), Virginia’s leader in land conservation.
Unfortunately the day we walked the Reserve’s beach I didn’t have my phone with me. I was only thinking about enjoying the fresh air and the beach, not posting on my blog. Those that know me know that I’m not one that carries my phone around with me a lot. But I’m turning over a new leaf in 2019 because here in the Northern Neck there seems to always be something I want to take a picture of. This area has such lovely water views, animals, interesting homes and people that I think I’m going to turn into one of those people whose phone never leaves their side.
