Nick and I are slowly getting used to our area and finding all the fun things that it has to offer! A new friend from church told me about Red Rock Regional Overlook Regional Park the other day, so Sunday morning after Nick and I did our couch to 5k workout and stopped at Peet’s Coffee & Tea for a beverage, we packed up the pup and headed out to the park.
It’s only about 15 minutes from our house, and sometimes I can’t believe that I’m only 15 minutes away from the Potomac River! Having lived in the Midwest my whole life, it’s just a new adventure everyday to discover all that my new home has to offer, and all of the things I get to experience!
We did the loop that was about a mile and half. Olive was having SO much fun, and loving every minute! There were some parts of the trail that were a little crazy, but we got right down along the bank of the river. The smell was a little less than fresh, but that didn’t stop Olive from jumping right in and going for a swim! Nick and I were laughing so hard because we’ve never seen her do anything like that before! She was so happy!
We had such a lovely Sunday morning being outside enjoying Virginia! While this park isn’t overly large, or have any extra amenities, it’s a great place to get in a good hike, and see some beautiful scenery. So far, Virginia isn’t too bad. 😉
