The Road Home

Our last night in The Foley House Inn was uneventful.  No jumping socks, no strange noises, just a good night’s sleep for both of us.

Chincoteague!

  Midweek, we headed west again, but this time we turned north just before getting to Norfolk so we could travel the world’s largest bridge/tunnel structure; the Chesapeake Bridge/Tunnel, stretching almost 20 miles across one of America’s busiest sea channels.  For a bridge geek, this is one of the ultimates…okay, there may be 15 or […]

Dixie Road Trip – Dixie Driving

We left Bardstown this morning around 8:00, driving eastward on Route 150.  Saw lots of beautiful horse farms and and we saw many homes that looked as though they had been abandoned 100 years ago, except for the refrigerators on the porch and the new F150s in the drive.  Very interesting to see such contrasts on one […]
