In the far, southwestern reaches of Virginia, nestled in a bowl-shaped, mountaintop depression, lies the remote community of Burke's Garden—no post office, no cell phone service or cable TV … and that's just how its 300-some residents like it. In our June 2010 issue, Virginia Living takes you there. We also visit the opposite end of the state, where NAS Oceana, the Navy's East Coast Master Jet Base, maintains a state of combat readiness in service of our national security. Nearby, also in Virginia Beach, is the Cooke-Royster house, a beautifully restored "cottage" that's been a North End fixture for 100 years. Also inside: a discriminating art collector, a veterinary clinic in Waynesboro specializing in healing and returning wild animals to the wild, unexpected twists on summer berries, open water swimming, ticks, renaissance man William "Pooh" Johnston, entrepreneur-turned-farmer-still-entrepreneur Sandy Lerner, daylilies, and much more.
