  Nestled among the boutique shops, art galleries and restaurants in historic Occoquan sits Patriot Scuba 305 Mill St. B-1 Occoquan, VA 22125 703-490-1175         I met with Merial Currer, co-owner with her husband Jeff, of Patriot Scuba.  While they have been in Occoquan for four years, they have only recently moved to this larger space.  It is truly a family business as their two sons also work with them.

If you are a mathematical wizard then you know that Pi is approximately 3.14 and is the ratio of any circle's circumference to it's diameter.  So March 14 or 3/14 is Pi Day.I can't think of any better way to celebrate the day than to head to Mom's Apple Pie in Occoquan VA. All of the pies at Mom's are made fresh with local ingredients. You can actually find someone peeling apples in the kitchen and you have your choice of the traditional two crust apple pie or the brown sugar crumb topping. Even though the store is called Mom's Apple Pie you will of course find a few other popular choices as well. Depending on the season you can find blackberry, raspberry and rhubarb fruit pies available. In the fall the pies change to the classics you would expect for Thanksgiving and Christmas with pu...

When summertime arrives in Occoquan VA my thoughts turn to sneaking off to Madigan's Restaurant for lunch on the deck. With views of the Occoquan River and the antics of the ducks it is a great escape from the ringing cell phone and stacks of paperwork on my desk. Madigan's in located in the historic Town of Occoquan just off I-95 and Route 123 in Prince William County.  Madigan's has a prime spot in town right on the Commerce Street next to the community park. You can always expect friendly service from the staff and you won't leave hungry. Seafood is their specialty and it is fresh daily. You won't find crabs when it isn't crab season and yesterday we indulged with a soft shell crab sandwich and of course a crab cake sandwich. Thankfully it is crab season in our area now!Expect a line...

You might wonder where I'm taking you when I suggest we walk down what appears to be a back alley in the historic town of Occoquan.  But trust me you'll be glad you did.  In fact if you don't believe me ask Patricia Kennedy. I introduced her to the Cock and Bowl for a late night dinner a few months ago. The owners of the Cock and Bowl, Michael and Jacquie had a vision to bring a European style Bistro to Northern Virginia. They succeeded in creating cozy place where you always feel at home and will eat delicious fresh food.  The Cock and Bowl serves over 50 Belgian Beers and it will be awhile before I work my way through the entire selection but I'm discovering some favorites.The specialty of the house are mussel bowls.  A generous serving of fresh mussels served in bowls with simmering ...

>Our family has been fans of Mom's Apple Pie in Occouqan VA for years. Now it appears the White House knows about this local favorite too. All of the pies at Mom's are made fresh with local ingredients. In fact the berries used fresh fruit pies are grown on the owners farm outside of Leesburg VA.   At this time of year you will find blackberry, raspberry and rhubarb fruit pies available.  And yes you can actually find someone peeling apples in the kitchen making your choice of the traditional two crust apple pie or the brown sugar crumb topping.  In the fall the pies change to the classics you would expect for Thanksgiving and Christmas with pumpkin, mincemeat and pecan. Don't want a whole pie around the house tempting you?  Not to worry you can find pie by the slice for just a little i...

The Coffee House of Occoquan is exactly where you would expect it to be, in the historic Town of Occoquan in Prince William County VA. Conveniently located at the corner of Commerce Street and Washington Street anyone looking for a cup of coffee to go with their morning commute will find it easy to get in and out. When you come inside the Coffee House you will quickly figure out that this is not your usual chain coffee shop where you will see the same décor in every one. Instead you would have to describe the décor as eclectic. There is no doubt that Linda the owner has a thing for salt and pepper shakers. Most of the shelves in the seating area are covered with them. As you would expect coffee is the main item on the menu. You can get it plain, flavored, cappuccino or latte, the usual...

Even though this mama duck has the Occoquan River only a block away she decided this puddle on the street was a good spot for a first swim.  Since it's Earth Day 2012 I hope you get a chance to enjoy the wonders of what Mother Nature has provided whether its watching ducklings in a pond or taking a walk through your local park.

  That is one sign you can believe as Occoquan is Historic - a tobacco warehouse was built there as early as 1736 and an industrial complex was under way by 1750.Occoquan means "at the end of the water" in the Dogue Indian language. There are falls just north of the town, but then the river levels out on its' way to the Potomac River. It made canoe travel easy and there was a good supply of fish. The town grew rapidly with forges, rolling mills, bake house, warehouses and homes - all before the turn of the century. The Merchant's Mill was the first automated grist mill in the country. It operated for 175 years until it was destroyed by fire, The miller's office survived and is now the Occoquan museum.By 1804 the town was laid out with streets and lots. Prior to the Civil War Occoquan h...
