After the rigours of shopping in the 100 degree heat on Wednesday, we decided on a trip to the Skyline Drive in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.
Sinnet and Amanda led the way, singing and whistling, as the park info brochure advised, to scare off any bears. It must have worked, because we didn't see any bears, but we did see lots of other flora and fauna, as well as lovely views of the mountains.
Back at home that evening, we had a classic American meal - chilli dogs, potato salad and corn on the cob - washed down with cold beer, then topped it off with the most delicious strawberries dipped in chocolate. (We're storing up fat to live on while we're camping for the next 3 months!)
And so to bed...
