Its been a long day, we set off at 6am, and I didn't sleep in this year, so dh was happy!!! It was a pretty uneventful drive, thank goodness. We crossed at Fort Erie into Buffalo and there were no line ups, the customs guy scanned our passports and off we went. We always use our passports even though we are Canadian citizens, as we have that accent thing happening, so it saves confusion and extra questioning!!!
It poured down all the way through Pittsburgh, after that though it cheered up, and by Virginia it was down right hot and humid. One highway we went on was US-19 and we stopped at a lookout and I took a couple of photos.
Now this plaque was at the same point, so it must have something to do with this person?
Now I have a question for those of you who are in the know...In West Virginia and Virginia we saw a number of crosses on the hillsides. There were generally three in a group. The middle and largest one was in a gold/yellow colour and the two either side of the larger one were silver/gray, what do they symbolize?
Tomorrow we only have a five to six hour drive so that is pretty easy. We try and do the majority of the driving the first day.
Now the funny thing about where we are staying tonight is that when we took the kids to Myrtle Beach a few years ago we stopped in the same hotel and went to eat at Shoney's, just like we are doing tonight, and it wasn't planned either time.
Oh by the way Daisy (GPS) was worth her weight in gold today, although we did turn her voice off, as she is pretty annoying after a while!!! Mind you if we get lost we want shooting, as not only do we have Daisy, we have a map printed out from Google, one from Map quest and a road atlas......talk about overkill....LOL
Can't wait until we get to Charleston!!!
