Ft. Monroe

So which would you choose?

We happily discovered Hampton,
even though we had to wait for an accident to clear
by the tunnel.
It was worth the wait.

If I lived in Hampton
I would spend a lot of time at Fort Monroe.
I loved the place.
There is more in Hampton to see,
but we only allowed one day
and spent most of it engaged at the Fort.

The Fort Monroe Authority
has been transitioning Ft. Monroe
from a military base
to a public economically-viable community
since 2011.

Hampton sounds like my cup of tea!

Amazing cityscapes and landscapes. You really capture the scenes well during daylight. I like the HDR image, as well as the beach ones. Of course the lighthouse is my favorite!

King Nepture is pretty cool looking but it would be frustrating not being able to find parking spaces.
Loved the the lighthouse shot and the building there look very historical and quite lovely.

Is the lens on the light house red? That must look pretty cool.
