Camellia continues his journey by flying further north and east into territory explored last year by his big sister, Azalea. Camellia left the Wise Point area about 10:00am July 16 flying over King and Queen County and just after noon reached the Rappahannock River and turned southeast. Just north of Urbanna in Middlesex County at just after 1:00pm Camellia crossed the Rappahannock into Lancaster County and by 3:00pm was at the shore of Chesapeake Bay where he turned north and flew to Mill Creek in Northumberland County. He remained here a few miles east of Mount Olive, VA for the next two nights. At about 11:00am yesterday July 18 he flew north just past Reedville and at noon did a U-turn and flew south past the mouth of the Great Wicomico River to about Kilmarnock and turned west back into Lancaster County. Camellia found a pond just west of Weems, VA that is north of Wharton Grove Rd and that is where he was last night and as of this map at 7:00am this morning July 19. Does Weems, VA sound familiar? Azalea was in this same area although not the same spot on October 28, 2009.
