Hyner View State Park, Pennsylvania

   I stopped at Hyner View S.P. in Northern Central Pennsylvania and rode the switchbacks up to the beautiful overlook. The river is the Susquehanah.


   I took the Ferry from Surry over to Jamestown.It is a free Ferry and they run all day.
There is a top deck you can go up onto for the ride also.

  I spent a couple of hours walking through the Historic Jamestown. You can see it as you are on the Ferry as it is right on the bank of the James River.

  I really liked this old Church.It was from around 1907 and in very good condition.

From Jamestown I took Colonial Parkway to Yorktown. Just outside of Yorktown I came across this stand of what I believe is Bamboo.

Fathers Day surprise Surry,Virginia

   On fathers day I showed up at my Dads house around 6 pm and I did not tell him I was coming down.

   He works in the shipyards in Newport News and has been down there about 10 years now.
