May 2, 2018 - Westmoreland State Park

2018-05-02.Westmoreland State Park Virginia State Parks are really nice and this park was no exception. The terrain along the Potomac is quite hilly and the park has trails that start on the bluffs or hills above the river and end at the sandy shores. The park literature and online descriptions boast a boat launch but that is very misleading. There is nothing that resembles a boat launch. The park rents kayaks that are located on the beach and clearly, you could carry the kayak to the water easily from there. But, if you have your own kayak...

Sep 12, 2006 - Colonial Williamsburg

What an incredible day! We were at Colonial Williamsburg at 9:00 this morning and didn't leave until after 5:00.

Being "collectors" it was hard trying to cram 20 lbs. of stuff into a 10 lb. bag. It took a lot of sorting and letting go of "things" but we finally did it. We still have our "things", but they are meaningful things. I kept a clay mermaid and puffin my daughter made for me when she was in school and a clay name plate Rick made when he was in school. That piece should be an antique by now.

May 11, 2005 - Washington D.C. - Day 1

Whew! Today was a serious tourist day - probably our most intense yet! We left our B&B around 10 a.m. and returned around 8 p.m. - talk about being on the go (and your feet) for a long time! Not to mention, temperatures hit 86 degrees with some wicked humidity - while we're grateful for nice weather, we were cursing the blazing hot sun all afternoon! We had a big day, and have posted many photos since we did a lot - Jenn tried as she might to capture things a little bit differently than all of the postcards they sell here, so we hope you...
