I had no idea you were making the place available to rent. We would definitely take a couple of weeks next year. Whether we can squeeze it in this summer is another question, but let me talk to Mrs. TigerHawk.

I haven't been there since the summer of 1978, but I absolutely love the place. Perhaps we can think of a solution.


A great piece and great photos of a very special place. I've been there three times in my life, last in 1990, and my memories of remain vivid. I rode my first horse there, saw my first terrifying horseshoe crab on the beach, scraped myself on barnacle rock and then watched it disappear at high tide, and watched amazed as my father caught puffer fish off the pier. Thoughts and prayers are with you and the rest of the clan in your preservation efforts.


Bless you both, Tigerhawk and Charlottesvillain. This was one of the hardest posts I have written. To me, Windrock and the people who have been associated with it are inseparable. You, with your own deep connections to place and to family know this full well. I have reason to hope the conservation solution will come to pass, but as with all real estate transactions there are many variables in play and we still are in the courtship phase rather than negotiating points of sale. Rest assured, I will keep you abreast of developments.
