We will be away from the internet for about a week — unless we happen to run over it somewhere on our travels! 😉

A few images from Virginia:

    Stunning photos, especially the purple flowers. 🙂

    I have a sister moving to a house just off the Potomac in VA I can hardly wait to go visit her there.

    Again, envious am I. I took an entire class on Jefferson's Monticello in college, but the last time we were near there we got called home early and didn't squeeze in a visit. We're hoping to see it this August.

    Vered – Thanks. It's a pretty neat place!

    Michelle – Thanks, we are enjoying the trip, though it looks like we'll be delaying our next trip.

    Debo – Thanks! We just crossed the Potomac an hour or so ago into Virginia — and then, almost immediately, we were in West Virginia!

    Leslie – The first time we visited Monticello was on July 4th many years ago. We weren't thinking! The lines were horrendous, but it was very neat.

    Awesome photos! I especially love the flower – wonder what kind that is.

    Teeni – Thanks!

    I don't know what the name of the flower is. We were in a group getting a tour of the garden, otherwise I would have tried to get pictures of the stakes with the names instead of trying to take pictures AND keep up with the group.

    Virginia beach looks like it's definitely in "off season". I can imagine what it looks like in July!

    Water right now is probably warmer than anything we'd get in Canada, though.

    • Mike Jun 7, 2009

      Yes, it certainly was in off season, even though it was a Sunday!

      I don't want to imagine that what it would be like during the season.

      I was too busy taking pictures to dip my toes in the water, but I'm sure it was chilly — but, yes, warmer than Canada, likely.
