“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature — the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.” ― Rachel Carson
We made a second trip to James River State Park while on vacation. The Tye River Overlook was so pretty we wanted to catch it at sunset. It did not disappoint.
This time we walked the river and wetland trails, taking in the beauty of the wildflowers.
On our last visit, we enjoyed the river from the banks at the picnic area. This time we ventured onto the beach. The sound of lapping water and wind whistling through the trees drew a soothing solitary scene for us.
Someone before us had created stone art.
The wetlands, woods, and brush provide cover and food for the birds, bees, rabbits, and deer.
As always, we enjoyed our walk through nature and snapped a few shots here and there.
