|The ever important flashlight - you never know when you will need one.|
We met in the parking lot at work and loaded everything into Deb's car and off we went at 5:30 a.m. last Wednesday morning. For a change, I was not driving. I drive on trips to Boston, I drive to Philly and then around Philly, I drive to OCMD so this was a difference. I managed to put aside as best I could the inner control freak and sit back and enjoy the ride. Since it was still dark out....... Debbie rooted around in her glove compartment and found this disk style flashlight....in case I needed help reading the map (??). No matter, this light will play an important role, later on our trip. We were not even out of the parking lot and my phone goes beserk with alarms sounding. I programmed heaven knows what when I put a one-time alarm on so I could be sure I was up and on my way in time. Then her tablet goes off and next hurt phone makes some noises. All this beeping and buzzing and we were not out of the parking lot......danger danger Will Robinson!
Our first stop was Skyline Drive and Luray Caverns.
|A hint of the coming mountains from the parking lot at Luray Caverns.|
|Cool formation that looked like an icy hill of snow.|
On to the Skyline Drive, top speed 35 mph. Can't make very good time but who would want to with views like this.
I could just drink it in. It felt like you could see forever.
|And then there are the little things you see along the way.|
|This is yarn I picked up at Salty Yarns earlier this month. It will look good with my black shawl and a Halloween pin for a Halloween fundraiser this Friday night.|
