Last week, ahead of July 4th, we escaped hot & humid DC for the beautiful cabin of friends on the Shenandoah River. The next 24 hours were filled with swimming, canoeing, hiking, drinking our fill of beer and wine, and very little technology. It was such a nice break! Virginia is winning me over, big time.
On the way back home on the 4th, we stopped at The Strasburg Emporium to look at antiques (it seemed like the rooms there stretched for miles!), and at Barrel Oak Winery for some vino to take home. It wasn't very patriotic of us, but we were so tired from all the time outdoors that we noshed on leftover enchiladas for dinner and were sound asleep well before the sun set or fire works went off. Woops! Better luck with that next year, but I loved having a long, low-key weekend with not much to do and 4 whole days to do it :)
