All the films were exciting to watch, inspiring, and left me itching to get outdoors. Which is, I think, kind of the point.

Camping in False Cape State Park

There goes Jimmy, heading down the beach at the isolated False Cape State Park, which in fact, is the least visited park in the state. False Cape is a mile-wide barrier spit in Virginia Beach sandwiched between Back Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. There’s a reason False Cape isn’t the most popular park around. It’s […]
