Toni - I loved learning more about how the sponge docks got their name, the statue, and seeing the sponges.  Enjoy the arts and crafts festival this coming weekend!

Hi Toni,  I love those type of events.  Those sponges are very cool.  I am seeing a big oval tub with one of those looming nearby.

Toni, this sounds like a great event. Unfortunately we can't be there. However, my wife loves Arts and Crafts Festivals! In fact, I wouldn't be surprised she will find one to tour this weekend in Northern VA.
