    Have you hiked Roaring Run Trail in Eagle Rock, #VA? An excellent family #hike, the trail passes rock walls, cascading water, five foot bridges and even a natural water slide before ending at Roaring Run Falls. At the head of the trail is Roaring Run Furnace, ruins of a 19th century furnace operation. Roaring Run #Creek is also known for trout fishing. #VAOutdoors #waterfall #loveva #repost #roaringrun #virginia #perspective #photooftheday Kudos to @spezzaroo for the beautiful photo!

      Beach time is approaching – it’s getting warmer, and next month it will be good at the Myrtle Beach resorts oceanfront balconies – late March it starts getting near 70 degrees, and just a little bit warmer is the perfect temperature for the beach. Virginia is nice, especially in the Chesapeake or the Pocomoke Sound. So, next month Myrtle Beach, and then the Bay, and then maybe back and forth one more time!

      Thanks for sharing this. I absolutely love Virginia in the winter time. It is really a magical place. It is extremely affordable too!
