I was just kidding.
there are, or used to be some nice areas of Newport News especially as you traveled North. I guess it is technically North West.
I had a friend who lived in one of those old mansions high overlooking the James River.
When we lived in VA, our last address was right on the Chesapeake Bay.
I could watch Pan’s submarine come in and out of the bay as I sat on the deck of the beach house. It was wonderful place to live.
The history in that area is wonderful... lots of things to see.
We don’t miss it, though. It was time to move on.
