These photos are all from my recent trip to Portsmouth, VA and Washington D.C. We were there for a family reunion. The scenery there was lovely and old and it was really cool for me, since I'm a West coaster and am not used to there being cool old stuff just everywhere. It was also ridiculously hot and I don't intend to ever, ever live there. But it's nice to visit and take pictures of. Most of the photos are unedited, because I have Photoshop now but I'm lazy, there are a ton, and I don't really know how to use Photoshop except for the very very basic stuff.
The Norfolk mermaid statue. There are several of these around the shore where we were, but I think this is the original. She appears on a lot of flags and memorabilia for Norfolk, which makes me suppose she's a sort of landmark. She's right close to where the ferry from Portsmouth to Norfolk gets off.
