Now, where was I?

Cabin at Westmoreland State Park

Cabin at Westmoreland State Park

We took a little break last weekend and went to Westmoreland State Park in Virginia. It was our first time there, but it seemed to be worth a try. It’s on the banks of the Potomac near the mouth of the Chesapeake, so there was fishing, it had cabins, and it allowed pets (aka, “Fritz”).  Above is a picture of the side of the cabine. Here’s the front porch area:

The rustic look is authentic: these cabins were built by the Civilian Conservation Corps between 1933 and 1942.

We had a great time, although the fish were not biting, and there was a fire ban. Still, we saw several bald eagles, some osprey, some deer, and each night were serenaded by a symphony of tree frogs, crickets, and cicadas.  So, I didn’t catch any fish. Do I look like I cared?

Me and Fritz cooling off.



  1. looks like the fish aren’t cooperating anywhere. sara took me out on her new boat yesterday and we didn’t even get a bite! although, she just sent me a text saying she has caught two today.

    looks like a nice place for some r & r, almost as good as coming to maine!!

  2. We did have a great time, but right after we got home all these news reports came out about how much bacteria is floating in Chesapeake this time of year. Kind of icky to think about. And although he was loaded with Frontline, Fritz somehow came back loaded with fleas. So maybe this place is more of a Fall getaway than mid-summer …
