Reflection Paper

The place I am writing about is called Reedville. I have been a resident of this little town for 36 years. It is located in the state of Virginia, in the Northern Neck region. Reedville is a quiet town, east of a town called Heathsville. It is at the beginning of Cockrell Creek and a part of the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay. Reedville got its name from a Captain named Elijah W Reed, who came here from Maine. Reedville is famous for its menhaden fishing industry, in which, Reed was responsible in starting.

If you take a stroll around this little town, you will see that in most of the neighborhoods, the houses are built close together. There is a small post office that provides mail for all of Reedville. By side the post office is a building that housed the only doctor's office and dentist office.

If you stroll on a little further, you will see a fishing dock where fishermen come to sell their catch for the day. At the dead end of this road you will see a restaurant called Crazy Crab.

If you move on to another section of Reedville called Fleeton, you will see one general store, still owned an operated by the same family. Even though this is a small community, you will see several Bed and Breakfast establishments, where many tourist stay when vacationing in this area. Fleeton road will carry you to Omega protein, one of the largest fishing industries in Reedville. Omega Protein provides jobs for many fishermen near and far. They also have the largest fishing vessels in this area. The fish caught by these vessels, are cooked and turned into protein additives, used in hair products, fish oil and fertilizer, to name a few.
