We've finished up our time in North Carolina. But our vacation is only half complete. We've headed on to Virginia to stay with my parents. But we did take an extra day in North Carolina to go spelunking and whitewater rafting. As you can imagine, we were unable to take pictures of the rafting and we didn't take a camera into the cave, but we had more fun than we've ever bothered to have.
Before we left, we did take a few good pictures of some interesting junk.
Here is Jen striking an elegant pose at an outlook off the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway. There used to be a sign where she is now. I think she looks better than some stupid sign!
This is Cindy and Paul. They own and operate 1902 Turnpike House bed and breakfast, pictured below. They were incredibly nice to us and their doggy Bella was also very accommodating! Thanks guys!
This was, more or less, the backyard. Really it was up the street a little but someone not afraid of poison ivy could jump down a short cliff to get back to the Turnpike House. I'm not much of an outdoorsman, so I don't know what those crawling vines might have been. Anyway, the trees were huge and ancient. The forest was a neat place to run and play!
Enough North Carolina, let's move on to Virginia. Actually the last couple are in Washington DC. The above picture is a trumpet man. The below picture is The Albert Einstein memorial, which is a bit tricky to find. But we found it alright! I Einstein is a personal hero of mine and I was compelled to climb his lap and give him a big hug.
Expect more pictures of Virginia and DC. But I have to go now. Lunch is ready.
