Hi, Neighbor!

While on vacation in the Shenandoah valley of Virginia, DH and I drove down to Strasburg, Virginia to have lunch before touring Belle Grove Plantation, the home of a distant relative. We found the coolest place downtown called "Hi Neighbor!" and chose that for our lunch spot.

What a wise decision! I had salmon cakes that were so good. DH had a taco salad that was huge and delicious.  Overall I would say the Shenandoah valley is full of charm and character. I am enjoying communing with my ancestors!

Highways & Byways!

DH and I are traveling. After having spent a few days in the land of Buffalo Wings visiting with one of his cousins, we headed south towards Virginia. I admit, after all the driving on the interstate system, I was tired of toll roads, interstates and rest areas. Instead, we headed down 219 through the lower western tier of New York state and into Pennsylvania. Good choice as we stopped for lunch at a little roadside place and discovered a woodcarver! You know the kind I mean, the kind that carves with a chainsaw! Amazing. I think that is one of the things I would love to learn to do, but I really value my limbs!

Make sure you click on the photo, so you can see the amazing work these carvers do. The castle and dragon are outstanding. Use your browser's back button to return to this blog.
