Family Visiting Vacation...

Well, my Mother and Grandmother came out from Texas to visit us for 8 days. They got here on the 15th of June and stayed till the 22nd of June. I came home from Culpeper on Friday the 16th.

That Saturday, we got up and went to Virginia Beach. We had a wonderful time. we got there around 10am and left near 4pm. It was very nice and sunny with dolphins and crabs everywhere. A lady told me that there are over 800 dolphins that live in the waters off Virginia Beach!!! I got to see a few of them jump out fo the water!!!

There were also SOOO many Ghost Crabs living on that beach! I have NEVER seen so many in one place. I got some good shots of them:

They were VERY FAST. I chased then along the shores and they could keep up with me running. It was very funny.

On Sunday, we got up and went to Mt Vernon, George Washington's Home. It was Incredible. We toured his estate and it was awe inspiring!! We were so close to DC, that we had to take them to see some of the sights. My grandmother had been and we have been there 3 times. We will go back again as you cannot due it justice in a few hours.

Just a note people, IF you see text that is a different color, click it, it is a hyperlink to more information about the stuff that I am babbling about.

On Monday, I went to work in Charlottesville and that afternoon, I met them and we went to Monticello, Thomas Jefferson's house.
He was an incredible man and was our 3rd President as well as an inventor.
He had many modifications to his house.
From his house, you can see the college, UVA, which he helped start and design.

I took Wednesday off and we went to Brown's Island in Richmond. It was a Fort during the civil war and it is not a park with a music venue on it.

They left on Thursday morning to return to Texas...

We all had a good time and miss them.

The Devil's Highway...

About 4 miles out of Culpeper Virginia and running through the East end of the town is Route 666. Nuff said!! It reminds me of the Movie Natural Brone Killers...

Faith Hill & Tim McGraw

We saw them last night at the Richmond Coliseum on their Soul to Soul 2006 Tour.  IT was a good show. I really did not know what to expect! They played for over 3 hours and had very good musicianship. Faith came on 1st and Then Tim closed the show down.  I enjoyed the show. IT seems that they are the only Star couple that can stay together…Time will tell.




You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
