Thanksgiving weekend we had a beautiful afternoon and Jess and I went exploring in the James River Park system. We started at the south end of the Potterfield Bridge, went east along the flood wall, then to the slave trail before backtracking to the Manchester Bridge and through part of the city back to Brown’s Island and the Potterfield Bridge back to the car. It was a long hike, but it was cool to see parts of the river we’ve not seen before. We were really surprised by all of the development east of The Boat House along the Capital Trail. We’ll have to do this again when the river level is lower and we can do the pipeline walk.
This year after Thanksgiving my family went for an #OptOutside hike in the James River Park System in Richmond on Black Friday. The weather was beautiful for a hike and we spent about 2 hours going around Belle Isle and the Potterfield bridge.
Our black Friday game was a nail biter until the end. Both teams just kept on scoring and ECU settled it with a fumble recovery in the 2nd OT. Great game and way to end the regular season at home. Now we’re hoping UAB can pull out a win against UCF so we can go to the Conference USA Championship.
The final ECU home football game of the year against SMU started out a little rain and ended with an ECU loss. We managed a 6-6 finish and have been invited to a bowl game. It’s been a fun season and I can’t wait until next year.
UAB came to ECU this weekend and we had another great tailgate. Between flip cup; punt, pass and kick contest; shots over the phone with Chris K who is stationed in England and the game itself, it was another legendary weekend.
My photo experiment for the weekend was a panoramic HDR of the stadium. It took quite a bit of hand editing, but it turned out pretty well.
