Beautiful River View from Old Point Comfort where the James River empties into the Chesapeake Bay. 12/28/2013
View from atop the historic old gun / cannon battery at Fort Monroe National Monument / Old Point Comfort. A beautiful mild winter afternoon for a walk around enjoying the sights. This is looking west up the James River through a couple of small Live Oak trees. Located at the mouth of the James river where it meets the Chesapeake Bay, Old Point Comfort has been in use as a military installation of some kinds and varying names since 1609. It is also home to the Old Point Comfort lighthouse which was built and first used in 1802. Many more photos of this trip to Virginia’s southeast Coast to follow.
