Wesley and I were able to get away this past weekend and go to Richmond for a couple days. It was a short trip, but a great little get away. We spent part of our honeymoon in Richmond, so it will always be a special place. We love its character, history, quaint streets, restaurants and cafes, and eclectic shops. This weekend we re-visited some of the places we went on our honeymoon, and also visited some new places.
Here’s the beautiful view we had from our hotel room–
One of our favorite coffee shops- Shockoe Espresso & Roastery- in the Shockoe Slip area (really cute, quaint area of town, cobblestone streets, cute shops, etc.)
They roast their own beans! Yummy!! 🙂
Capital of Richmond-
This is one of the coolest buildings in downtown Richmond. I love how this shot captures the old, the new, different materials and textures-
more coffee! 🙂
We love to walk along the Canal in downtown. This trip we decided to take a boat tour along the canal. We actually didn’t enjoy the boat ride as much as the canal walk, but here’s a few photos from the ride.
This old draw bridge was pretty cool. It was based off of a design by Leonardo DaVinci.
We also had lots of fun taking pictures of each other! Here’s Wesley with his new 35mm camera. So cute!!
Here’s a shot from our honeymoon- over 3 1/2 years ago 🙂
