Azalea has revisited some very familiar places that she hung out at in 2009. On the last map on August 1 she was on Sydnor’s Millpond near Edwardsville, VA where she spent the night. She spent all morning of Aug 1 at the millpond, but about 2:00pm she flew north a few miles to Hull Creek off the Potomac River. This is a place with which she is very familiar having spent much time here in the fall of 2009. She rested overnight here and made a flight out over the Potomac River which means she was in St. Mary’s County, Maryland for a very brief time about 1:00pm Aug 2. She then returned to Snydor’s Millpond for another nights rest. Having satisfied herself that all was well at her old stomping grounds, about 10:00am Aug 3 she turned south leaving Northumberland County and into Lancaster County, crossed the Rappahannock River into Middlesex County heading toward Gloucester, then turned west crossing the York River into York River State Park in James City County. She continued a short distance further to just west of Croaker, VA and at 5:00pm arrived at a small pond west of Mt. Laurel Rd, south of Ware Creek Road and about 1/2 mile east of I-64 not far from Exit #227. That is where she is as of this map at 7:00am Aug 4. Her little brother Camellia from the 2010 NBG brood is only a few miles south on the James River. Will they find each other???
