Beautiful Skies Over Kilmarnok, Virginia-SKYWATCH Friday


The first weekend in November we attended the Urbanna, Virginia Oyster Festival. As there were no places to stay in Urbanna, I booked us into a hotel in Kilmarnok.

Kilmarnok is a short drive over Highway 3 from Urbanna. It is a pleasant little town and I enjoyed wandering about the town. The photograph above is taken at the wharf.  It appears that the town is expanding its capacity to moor boats as this area was not yet accessible by foot.

Do stop by and visit all my friends at SKYWATCH FRIDAY and share in the holiday spirit. Skywatch Friday was created by Dot, and perfected by Tom and is now hosted by Klaus. Skywatch members are Wren, Sandy, Sylvia, Louise, Fishing Guy, and Klaus. 

Happy Holidays One and All!

Hi Erin,

Ahhh, Kilmarnock. We have a small piece of property in Farnham, on the western shore of the Northern Neck, just north of here. So beautiful down there, huh?

This is a gorgeous shot...brilliant colors and look at that sky! Happy SkyWatch, Erin, and I hope you have a most merry holiday!
