Update to Day trip to Lake Sherwood

My last post said there were three videos on my personal page. I was just now able to get all three up and working. Here is the direct link to that page:

Lake Sherwood – A Day Trip

This is a bit of a drive from Roanoke, but a very nice drive to a beautiful lake! Stephanie and I were able to schedule a day trip, the first real outing since our cruise. One would think that since our children are grown, we would have more time together. From Roanoke you can travel US 220 to I-64 or go across SR-311 to I-64. Since were picking up brother Greg and his bride Tracy and meeting them in New Castle, we chose the 311 route. A very wonderful ride for scenery and wildlife. There are more pictures on my personal webpage: Just look for the “photo” link. that page also has three videos.

Here is a view of the lake from the day use/picnic area.

Can any one identify this bird? If so, just e-mail me from my website:

How about these “birds”?

Those who have been to Cave Mountain Lake Recreation Area near Natural Bridge, Virginia, this is very similar only larger. There is a tent only loop of sites, however for those with the RV’s there NO hookups. A dump station is provided, but you will have to bring your own water and generator. If using a generator, please abide by the rules.
