(visited by Marianne Cardwell and Michael Cardwell)

30-Sep-2000 -- Mike and I had gotten married in July, but were only able to go on our honeymoon 3 months later. We were heading for Virginia Beach from Washington, DC, and this confluence was only one hour out of the way, so we (or should I say I?) decided to go! It was also a good excuse to use the GPS receiver I had just received for my birthday a couple of weeks earlier.

The drive over there was interesting. This was a part of the country I had never seen. We were really in the boondocks. Fields of cotton and peanuts surrounded us, as well as some beautiful brick houses.

We drove up a driveway to the house that seemed to be the closest to the confluence. Luckily, we caught the lady living there right before leaving for work, and were able to take a couple of pictures of our surroundings (while she was watching us, thinking we wanted to steal her land!). After taking a couple of pictures from that location (which is where I took the picture of the GPS receiver), we drove to another house which was about as far from the confluence as the other house, and took a couple of pictures there as well.

Coordinator's Note: This visit was reclassified 'incomplete' after a review following visit #2.
