Deltaville Fireworks


Deltaville Fireworks

Here’s a shot I captured with my iPhone of fireworks at the end of Heritage Day in Deltaville, Virginia last weekend. Most folks gather in the local cemetery next to the ball park to watch the display, following the Deltaville Tides baseball game. The fireworks, sponsored by the Deltaville Community Association, are launched behind the town fire department. My family and I have made this a tradition for the past few years, and it was a great way to kick off our vacation this year.

Blue Angels Soar at Andrews AFB Air Show


Jenny and I took the boys and spent the day at the Joint Forces Open House and Air Show at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland on Saturday, May 19.  It was a beautiful, clear day, and despite our sunburn, we had a great time.  I took lots of photos and created a gallery page for some of the better ones.   — Rob
