the wandering chick
her very charming beach
It's no doubt Yorktown is filled with history, but this trip I just wanted to visit the beach. I hope you find the pictures here as pleasing to the eye as I did while walking the sandy shore.

tall ship
Lucky for me, the Tall Ship of Delaware, the Kalmar Nyckel, was docked in Yorktown while I was there. This replica of the original ship is owned by the Kalmar Nyckel Foundation and acts as a floating classroom, offering sea-based learning experiences, among other things. Built by the Kalmar Nyckel Foundation's shipyard, she was launched in 1997 only 200 yards downstream from the site of the original ship's first landing. Each year she sails along the eastern seabord from her home port of Wilmington, Delaware, offering educational programs as well as acting as a good-will ambassador for the state of Delaware.

The George P. Coleman bridge, called the Coleman Bridge, was named for George P. Coleman who headed the state's Department of Highways and Transportation in the early 1900s. It is the largest double-swing span bridge in the U.S. and the second largest in the world. Its highest point in almost 90 feet above the York River.
Shops and beachfront dining add to the charm of Yorktown Beach.
