Get out your flight goggles and fasten your seat belt, Camellia is about to take you on a journey. When we last left Camellia he was headed toward Poquoson, VA at 11am on Aug 12. Immediately after that he made a sharp left turn to the south and by 1pm had crossed Norfolk Harbor and was back in Virginia Beach, by 2pm at Back Bay, by 3pm was in Pasquotank County North Carolina just north of Elizabeth City. At 4pm Camellia arrived at the mouth of the Little River where it empties into Albemarle Sound and there he rested until 10am Aug 13. Keep those flight goggles on! From here he did a U-turn heading back north across Perquimans and Gates Counties and back into Virginia in Southampton County arriving at the small community of Delaware on Va Route 671 about 2pm. Camellia took a rest break here along the Nottoway River and the Norfolk and Southern Railway tracks until 9am Aug 14. He then continued his trip north – 11am Sussex County, noon Petersburg, 1pm Chesterfield County, 2pm west of Richmond, 3pm Goochland and Hanover Counties and at 4pm Aug 14 arrived at Lake Anna in Spotsylvania County. Lake Anna is the boundry between Louisa and Spotsylvania Counties and is the location (Louisa County side) of the Dominion Virginia Power nuclear power plant. That is where Camellia spent his first night on Lake Anna. On Aug 15 and early the 16th he explored the southern parts of Lake Anna. The afternoon of Aug 16 and all day Aug 17 and 18 he flew around north of VA Route 208 including Lake Anna State Park. This map at 7pm Aug 18 finds Camellia just south of Route 208 in Louisa County. Hope you enjoyed the journey.
