Flight of The Osprey

HISTORY: The Jamestown Ferry service was privately established in 1925. The Commonwealth of Virginia acquired it and the Department of Transportation (VDOT) assumed operations in 1945. It runs it as a state service. Nearly a million vehicles make the fifteen minute voyage across the James each year.

The ferryboat Captain John Smith made the first automobile-ferry crossing of the James River on February 26, 1925. The privately owned business was founded by Captain Albert F. Jester. After the Captain John Smith was retired in the early 1950s, the deckhouse was put into adaptive use. For another 50 years, it was used as a private waterside cottage, perched on pilings in the Elizabeth River near Portsmouth. In 2003, the deckhouse was removed and donated to a preservation group in Surry County

Beauty Is in The Eye of the Beholder (BITEB)

The first person to use it in the form we know today ("beauty is in the eye of the beholder") was an author called Margaret Wolfe Hungerford. She included the phase in her book 'Molly Bawn' (1878). It is another way of saying that beauty is subjective. It's true that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Integrated Freelance Photography (IFP23) joined First  Settlers Region (FSR) for an early summer fun run to Shirley Plantation in Charles City on Saturday July 11, 2020.  IFP23 took a series of photos of the clubs gathering prior to their planned route of 82 miles starting at the Chickahominy River Front Park in Williamsburg, Virginia. 

Background: The Chickahominy is an 87 mile-long (140km) river in the eastern portion of the U.S. state of Virginia. The river was named after the Chickahominy Indian tribe who lived on the river when it was claimed by the English colonists in 1607.
