Wingina was beautiful and peaceful under the canopy of trees along the walkway by the James River on Monday afternoon. The Lovingston Volunteer Fire Department cooked chicken in a large smoker. Mr. Wood, the landowner for the Wingina Site, sat by the river with some of his friends. Many batteau people went up to him and thanked him for letting us camp at his site for all these many years!

The batteaux slowly started coming in to the site. Everyone was happy and there were no reports of trouble on the river. Late in the evening Dr. Bill Trout and I remarked at how cool the moon was coming up over the river. The night went on into a peaceful cool night to sleep well by the river.
