Day 3

July 10, 2015

Not really a Chesapeake heron, but it was a heron statue nonetheless and worthy of being added to the blog.  This heron statue is not an official Chesapeake one, but can be found inside Norfolk Botanical Gardens.

Day 2

July 2, 2015

Today we found most of the known Chesapeake herons (there are not many out there as of yet).  We were unable to find the heron supposedly at the Walmart in Edinburgh or the heron that was supposed to be at the Dollar Tree Headquarters on Volvo Pkwy.  Employees at both locations had no knowledge of the herons.  We also found out that the heron at Heron's Landing at 2133 S Military Hwy was in the maintenance shop undergoing repairs.  We will have to check back with it later. Finally, we have not been able to verify if the heron supposedly at American GFM Corporation is actually there or not.  They are closed for the holiday weekend.  We'll  check back next week.  There is also rumored to be one at a private residence, but I do not know the location.  Here is what we did find:

 heron at TCC in Chesapeake - 1428 Cedar Rd.
 outside heron behind Chesapeake City Hall - 306 Cedar Rd.
 "The Chesapeake Jewel" -  inside heron in back of Chesapeake City Hall - 306 Cedar Rd.

Day 1

Jan. 2, 2015

We set off on a quest in the summer of 2014 to find all of the Norfolk mermaids.  To this date, we have found 94!  Here is our blog about the mermaids and the newspaper article about our quest.  Since we live in Chesapeake, we thought it only fitting to have a quest to find all of the Chesapeake Blue Heron statues.  This is a new project for our city and there are not nearly as many as Norfolk's mermaids.  To this date, there are apx. 10 of them.  Here is a recent article about them.

Today we found 1 heron - the patriotic heron:
