As we mentioned in the previous post, Greg recently saw a bald eagle just off out pier. It turns out that our Inn is within the roaming range of the bald eagles at the Rappahanock River Valley Natinal Wildlife Refuge. One of the 3 refuges in the area, the RRVNWR protects the nesting grounds of bald eagles as well as other rare and endangered species such as the perigrene falcon and shortnose sturgeon among others.
