Stopped in Boydton to take a fee pics of this quaint little town. Boydton is a town in Mecklenburg County, Virginia, United States. The population was 431 at the 2010 census. It is the county seat of Mecklenburg County,[3] and it is near Kerr Lake.
Crops around here are Tobacco and Soybeans. They are actually mixed in the same fields.
It ended up being a very busy afternoon for Tipper and E&L CG, trying to finalize and wrap up all loose ends for tomorrows job at the damn. Tipper met with the Electrical engineer and the Maintenance supervisor with The Corps of Engineer on the installation of a Draft Tube Gate. He spent alot of time in his mobile office while I walked around and took pictures. Lucky 🍀 Me! 😂
Road snacks.
Quick bite to eat before we head back to the Damn.
Wow, South side is not so low anymore.
