Photos on Friday: Scenes from the Occoquan River

Earlier this summer, in July, we visited Occoquan, a small town located in Northern Virginia, not too far from I-95. Yet, when visiting, you'd never know you were so close to the interstate. It's a quaint little town and sits on the Occoquan River, which is a tributary of the Potomac River. 

Occoquan's official website compares the town to "Main Street, USA", and I'd have to agree with that assessment.  There were a few shops open on that Friday evening but most were closed, along with a museum I'd love to pop into. The town is seeping with history and I want to learn more about it. 

I plan to go back and do a proper visit and will write a more detailed post at that time. For today's post, I wanted to share some scenes of the river.
