I just can't keep this blog up to date because it is more important to enjoy the road trip experience than to record it! But I do want it recorded for our posterity.
You know, I am not so enamored with seeing every lighthouse but...my husband is...so we have seen a lot of them! The last lighthouse photo below shows my interest waning a little.
We stayed at Kill Devil Hills....what a name....right across the street from where Wilbur and Orville built and flew the first aircraft. Only one photo of the actual event was taken....and it was the first time the "photographer" had ever even tried to take a picture. Luckily it turned out great.
I have always been enamored with the Chesapeake Bay and we got to cross it on the 17 mile bridge and tunnel. The weather turned cold and windy as the storm approached the eastern seaboard which made it wonderfully dramatic!
We spent a day wondering what it would be like to live in the beautiful farmlands we drove through in Virginia and Delaware. Had my birthday dinner in a small family restaurant called The Mill Pond, so un fancy and homelike...with leftovers for tomorrow.
Sunday morning, crisp and clear, every little white church busy with activity as worshippers greeted friends and family and headed inside. Did my heart good.
So that was a few days crammed together. ..a few very good days. I am so grateful for so much. My cup truly runneth over.
