A Virginia Sunrise

This month hubby and I took a very long road trip. It totaled over 2,400 miles so it was quite a trip! We have an uncle and aunt who live up in Connecticut that we were going to visit back in late August/September, but Hurricane Irene took care of that vacation.  So when we spoke with them again they asked us for a favor; if we came up could we take them back with us, and then on down to Florida.  Both of them had health problems this past summer, and our aunt's heart doctor didn't want her to fly.  Being "snowbirds" the Connecticut winters are hard for them to handle these days.  So of course we said yes....I've been longing for a road trip for ages!


We stayed over night in Virginia with my cousin.  The next morning was oh so cold and foggy, but it made for a beautiful sunrise with the fog in the valley.

This West Virginia rest area was among the prettiest that I have seen! I had to show a couple of photos from it.  After West Virginia came Maryland, Pennsylvania (where I saw an Amish horse and buggy going on a road over the interstate, but I was driving so no pic), then to New Jersey, New York, and then Connecticut.  Going back we avoided that part of New Jersey and New York as it took us longer going that route.  Of course you know how men can be when you say why don't we go this way.......after dealing with that traffic hubby was thankful to avoid it!
I'll have more photos together for more posts soon, but blogger was acting weird last night so I gave up!
