Vacation was wonderful. No drama - no tension. We spent the week in Virginia exploring the Shenandoah mountains. We drove the skyline drive and hiked three different days in the park. I took a ton of pictures of the wild flowers. We saw plenty of deer and bear. Hubby and the kids went horseback riding one day while I went on a ranger led discovery (weed) walk.
We spent a day exploring Luray caverns and museums. Another day we headed down to see the natural bridge. We drove back via the blue ridge parkway.
We ate at little mom and pop places as much as possible. I enjoyed some delicious fried green tomatoes. And the beef brisket melted in your mouth.
