August 2007 Issue


Read this issue

Read about life on Virginia’s electric lakes, eating green at farmers’ markets, and the crabbing culture of the Northern Neck. Swoon over a devilishly chic film noir fashion feature. Take a trip inside the mad mind of the artist who created “Foamhenge”—a replica of Stonehenge. Tour historic Carter’s Grove in Williamsburg, and visit quirky Colonial Beach, where you can fish croaker and play keno on the same day. Cool down with recipes for delicious ice creams and sorbets—it’s all in the August issue of Virginia Living.
