But this past weekend we hit Richmond again.And we were able to spend time with my brother and his wife for her birthday. A much over due trip and we enjoyed every moment. I spent so much time there growing up that, perhaps, I took it for granted, but my love has been officially reignited. I adore the old neighborhoods with homes that must have the greatest stories to tell. The art scene is alive and vibrant.
and the food. Oh, you know how I love a good foodie scene and Richmond far from disappoints. There really is so much to do in this charming town. Wiki loves it and says it reminds him of a "smaller Boston"
Here are just a few of our stops this particular trip.
|The lucky strike tower. All reovated and apartments, condos and restaurants.|
|L.B. & Aim while we waited for our brunch at Millies.|
an hour wait. Well worth it!
|Street art on the canal walk|
|One of the oldest and largest Iron Works ever built. Now a museum.|
The James River and beach area of the old ruins, off the canal walk.
|Wiki and I stopped in for Sunday service at this beautiful church|
|Architecture of the city|
|A Worhol piece at the Museam of Fine Arts.|
One of the best I have been to in the country.
and I have been to lots;)
|The lobby of the incredilbe Byrd theater. Absolutely, hands down, zero questions asked...|
the best place in the country to see a movie! If you ever find yourself in Richmond, you must catch a show.
End of discussion.
and this last shot is one of many from our stop to Maymont Park, which deserves a post of its own and will get one. But at least you can get a small gander as to how lovely it is.
