Hiking the First Landing State Park

We've been here in Virginia Beach for the last couple of months and have had a new routine to say the least.  Sadly, I have not exercised much.  Although I have done a lot more reading and we have been involved with some projects around the Roadrunner, at Kelly and Jon's, Adam and Melissa's and at the local Habitat for Humanity.

On Saturday we changed things up a bit and went to the First Landing State Park for a hike.  The State Park is about five miles from the campground.  In a word - it was fantastic!
It was a very cold but a very clear and beautiful day.  We picked out a short trail and started off on the Bald Cypress Trail.

It was stunningly beautiful and we realize how much we miss our hiking.

Its been a few months since the last one.

We didn't want to overdue it so we settled on the short hike this time and vowed to take some more trails another day.
Thanks for joining us to day on the Roadrunner Chronicles!


  1. Glad to see that you are back out there on the trails. I guess the cold weather sort of dampens the spirit a bit but hopefully the nice weather is on it's way. Love the bald cypress trees, they have so much character.

    1. As long as it is a nice day (e.g. not wet), we like getting out there!

  2. You look entirely too cold on that hike, does it make you walk faster to stay warm? ;c)

  3. The Bald Cypress trees are beautiful, but the weather accompanied with hats and warm coats looks a bit much for me. Stay warm!
