The Pond

This beautiful pond is tucked away in a remote area near the Court House in King & Queen County. 
It's the perfect place to spend a cloudy, carefree Saturday afternoon. 
Fishing, listening to music, whatever your pleasure!

Can you see the dam in the background of the photo below? 
It's not unusual for a deer or a turkey to make an appearance there. 
Ducks in pairs and pesky beavers have also been spotted on occasion!

When Hurricane Irene blew through the area last fall, the water on the pond was angry and fierce. 
Most days, however, it's calm and inviting.

Where do you go to relax?

I go on a one-way trip to Bora Bora in my mind, however until that becomes reality I sit in my back yard and stare at Queens Creek.

This is exactly how I envisioned the pond!
