Today is the day Ashley and I have been waiting for for months! This evening around 6 pm, we are flying out of Washington and will be landing in Madrid around 8 am (Madrid time). Hopefully we will be able to catch a few hours of sleep on the flight, even though I'm sure we both will be too excited :) Ashley and I are both nervous about how well we will be able to communicate with people when we get there. Yes, we have both been studying Spanish for years (around 7 or ...
... about 1/2 mile upstream along the Shenandoah.
Along the road, we passed a road sign for a Railroad Museum in Brunswick, Virginia, just about 5 miles back up the road from where we are now, but we checked into it and found out that they are only open on Friday through Sunday, so I guess we'll have to skip that.

A few minutes later the dog returned, this time with his owner with him. We talked for a good while, he showed me where to find Scarlet Snakes, taught us some history of the area, we found out the rock I took the photo of him/and his dog on was named after is Ferret...Blizzard Rock....pretty cool!

This one was great and could easily be a $125.00 hotel some repos were on going in the lobby but we were so pleased with our room we thought of staying put longer but our need to get home to our own bed after 40 days was a priority ..... go enjoy this lovely home away from home and get a coupon from coupon.com
