Belle Isle on a Memorial Day weekend


Parking is limited, so be prepared to walk.

I took a little walk to stretch my legs today and ended up at Richmond's "beach": Belle Isle on the James River. There were hundreds of people enjoying the sun and water. Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy.

Belle Isle is accessed via a pedestrian bridge that hangs below the Lee Bridge.

Family-friendly shallows west of Hollywood Rapids.
