Sep 29, 2012 - Beginning of the Potomac River--Fairfax Stone

The Fairfax Stone Historical Monument Park is well worth the time and effort to stop by if in the area. The stone marked the western boundary of land granted to Lord Fairfax by the King of England in the 1700s. This small stream of water marks the boundary between WV and MD, and forms the mighty Potomac River that flows through Washington, D.C.

Sep 28, 2012 - George the Cat

Upon arriving at our campsite a few days ago Debbie spotted a black cat in the distance. So she called it and Tom meowed and the kitten came over. It was an extremely friendly cat, not something I have seen in many cats. So Debbie gave it a large can of tuna fish and it gulped it down. Seemed to be satisfied now and began purring and we were petting it for awhile. When a camping neighbor came back to their campsite I asked if they had a black kitten. They said it lives here in the campground and his name is George.
