    #Downtown #Staunton is filled with amazing #architecture including the Romanesque-Revival Marquis Building seen here. It was designed by T.J. Collins in 1895 (he designed nearly 200 buildings throughout the city in various styles during the #Victorian Era). Note the large umbrella fixed to the corner of the turret! #loveva #virginia #vatravel #mainstreet #vais4lovers #oldschoolva

      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!
