The other 3 of us meandered along and had a delightful time with some new exploring. We went on Colonial Parkway - the bumpy road- which I love. We saw more eagles and it was so sunny and so pretty and truly wonderful.

Then someone suggested a shortcut. Sure. I know I am the only one that likes this road so I go along with it. We ride on some great roads but eventually come to another one of these.
This time we do not climb over as there is nowhere to go but a deep hole and some water on the other side. But we have a snack and watch some more eagles and enjoy the day before we meander back and end up in a ritzy neighborhood where we pick out our vacation homes. Then we find our way back to Jamestown (where we were headed before the "shortcut"). It must be time to use the nice museum bathroom. Then we go to a park next to the ferry. We find out the ferry is free and I do love ferries as does Cathy so off we go. We get a call from the other two who make the ferry and join us for a little water time on the James River.
Yes, I do love being on a ferry!
All of us in line for the ferry.
My bike is happy too.
It's a fairly wide and brown river.
The Jamestown Settlement. Sadly, this is the closest I got.
I think it's an osprey. It was quite awesome to watch.
