Hampton Roads
June - July 2006
While working for a few weeks in the Hamptons Roads area of Virginia I had a little bit of free time on the weekend so I did some sightseeing in Norfolk, Portsmouth, Virginia Beach and some other parts of Hampton Roads. I did some driving and a ton of walking (over 18 miles).
