Sunset from Fort Monroe National Monument / Old Point Comfort, Hampton, Virginia. After a beautiful mild winter afternoon for a walk around enjoying the sights we were treated to this spectacular sunset looking west up the James River. 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 kind and varying names since 1609, and is also home to the second oldest lighthouse on the Chesapeake Bay, the Old Point Comfort Light. (seen in prior photos) Many more photos of this trip to follow.
