Here’s a Twitter-inspired trip!
I mentioned on Twitter that we were in the Richmond area, and Lani Pokrana (@lpokrana), a fellow nomad, suggested the Maymont Park as a nice daytrip. We researched it a bit online and with an Italian Garden, Japanese Garden, wildlife exhibits, nature center, and mansion tours all available it sounded great. It was also closer to where our upcoming ExpressionEngine class will be so we were able to combine a daytrip to the park with some reconnaissance around our class location.
I won’t give a full account here - suffice to say that this was a great stop with something for everyone including the shutterbug..;)
