If anyone is in the Richmond area and looking for a quick thing to do, I would recommend the Riverfront Canal Cruises tour. This tour only takes 40 minutes and you will learn some interesting history during the ride. Since this is a weather dependent attraction, please plan accordingly. The tour season lasts from May-September.
While we were on the tour, our guide told us a story about a special heron in the area named Richard. Earlier this year Richard was having a hard time moving around and getting food. Our guide helped with Richard’s rescue effort. Once Richard was caught, they discovered that he had FOUR POUNDS of fishing line wrapped around his leg. It was all successfully removed and Richard recovered quite well.
