To be a Virginian
either by Birth,
Marriage, Adoption,
or even on
one's Mother's side
is an Introduction to
any State in the Union,
a Passport to
any Foreign Country,
and a Benediction

BC Lake.JPG (90041 bytes)

This picture is of a place that I enjoyed with all my heart during it's short existence.  Due to problems that were of a nature that at the time seemed insurmountable, our county regulators decided to close this wonderful lake that all enjoyed.  Since the closing there has been no other recreational county park that could take it's place.
