Canal Walk

I walked the James River Canal Walk this morning. I took 175 photos and got just 6 (!) that I’m happy with. But it’s a nice walk, especially for anyone interested in history or architecture.

The underside of Manchester Bridge. I had to do some scrambling to get this one, but I had to have it.

One of many great, old buildings along the Canal, the RJ Reynolds Tobacco Co.

The Canal Walk is a very nice walk and a good look at a lot of Richmond History. Definitely worth a couple trips back for photos.
