on & off the five mile loop

After riding north on the Jamestown Ferry, I drove the five mile loop on Jamestown Island.

Though hardly a naturalist, I'd never seen this plant before.

One common name for it is American Beautyberry. I'd later see it growing near the river at Chippokes Plantation.

An osprey's nest, I guess . . .

I'm a sucker for wooden causeways.

And the places they cross.

After the five mile loop, I rode along the Colonial Parkway and stopped off by the James River. (Click here for sounds of the James that day.)

A distant view of Hog Island:
