Getting to know Virginia – Occoquan

Ock-a-kwan? Ack-a-con?!?

Awk – like awkward – a – soft aaah not a hard aaapple – quan – like quality. Occoquan!

Only an hour and a half North of Richmond, we visited this quaint and quiet little town back in June for the Spring Craft Show. Felt more like Dante’s Craft Show as hot and humid as it was! We ate lunch first and then only walked around for a few minutes because the heat was just too stifling to enjoy ourselves. But there was a ton of architecture I would love to go back and shoot.

Most, actually all, of the shots I took were at lunch because there were at least fans blowing (we had to eat outside) and we were in the shade. But we were still puddles of grossness by the time we finished our meal. I was just not in the mood to take any more pictures after that :(

But the restaurant was right on the river, so the scenery kept us a tiny bit distracted from the heat ;-)

I’ll add more after I go back for round two.
