Yorktown Beach at Riverwalk Landing, Yorktown, Virginia

In addition to the historic district and Riverwalk Landing, there is a beautiful beach at Yorktown on the York River just before it joins the Chesapeake Bay.  The Yorktown Beach is a popular spot for families and includes a fishing pier and large grassy picnic area.  The York River is a tidal river and blends salt and fresh water, known as "brackish."

Heavenly! Look at all that white sand. Born in Norfolk, I imagine the beach similar to the one my mom and dad took me to as a baby. Virginia is a wonderful place. Esp. when you are behind the lens of the camera.~`karen

That is a beautiful beach! Thanks so much for taking the time to comment on my painting. I've finished it and should (hopefully) have it posted this weekend. I love your blog! I really need to go to Williamsburg again.
