Back Issue: June 2012
Is there anything more summer than picking crabs on a dock in the fading light of a sun-splashed afternoon? In the June 2012 issue of Virginia Living, we celebrate the season by telling the story of how the Chesapeake Bay s crustacean population was brought back from the brink of collapse. If you are looking for something sweeter, then we have two treats for you: We hail the juicy pink flesh of the fig, which has survived centuries and outlasted civilizations, and we give you the hole story about Virginia s artisan doughnut makers. We also examine modes of transport large and small, from the iconic final days of America s steam engines on the Roanoke to Norfolk line, seen through the lens of O. Winston Link, to the loud, dangerous, high-speed and even higher jumps of motocross, as we visit Birch Creek Motorsports Complex in Sutherlin. Elsewhere in the June 2012 issue of Virginia Living we interview banking mogul Furlong Baldwin, the 11th generation of the Eyre family to live in Northampton County, and visit the Indian state of Rajasthan, also known as the Land of Princes. Also inside: international sailing star Rives Potts, Virginia s top brunches, culinary canine treats, a drive-through dairy bar, Bigfoot sightings and more!
