I didn't ever report back, now did I? Well, I went to the mountains with my son and two of our friends. It was cool, comfortable, lovely, lush, relaxing... when we weren't running around looking at stuff! We visited Hawk Mountain Sanctuary.
We visited a huge Cabela's in Hamburg. [no photos, sorry]
We visited The Mannings (!) -
We visited Downtown Gettysburg.
And on the way home we stopped by Historic Ellicott City in Maryland for a late lunch / early dinner. The old part of the town is built into a winding hill, actually carved out of rock. It is a really picturesque place. I wish I had taken some photos, but I just forgot! [photo borrowed from official website]
Whew! We left Virginia on Sunday (Aug. 3) and arrived back home on Wednesday night (Aug. 6); all of us exhausted! The pets were glad to see us, though, and I was glad to see them, too.
