Last weekend I was whisked away on a press trip to Tides Inn in Irvington, Virginia, located just inside the Chesapeake Bay. A handful of writers and myself were treated to all the Northern Neck had to offer, including oysters, Virginia wine, yummy food, a boat trip, bicycles, and maybe even a spa treatment. I haven’t yet developed my story from the weekend, but I will be singing some high praise, as it was a beautiful retreat. Here are a few images. And, yes, that’s a bona fide bald eagle. One point for America.
