  • Buttermilk Trail – Richmond VA

    Buttermilk Trail – Richmond VA

    Last week, I was in Richmond so I took advantage of some of the city’s urban trails. Richmond has some pretty good trails … my personal favorite is Belle Isle. But I headed Southside of the James River and decided to do the Buttermilk Trail/Belle Isle/James River North Bank loop – about a 6+ mile […]

  • Kiddies, Candy, and Craziness

Kid’s singing ‘hosannas’, palm branches waving, adult choir specials, organ solo, colors of the cross, and so much more as […]
