Our son is a grown person now, so Halloween is no longer about costumes and candy, which is weird enough...and then Halloween 2020 was even weirder for the whole-wide-Halloween-celebrating-world. It was a beautiful fall Saturday though, and I had taken the day off, so we decided to head-out on a day-trip adventure...another thing 2020 has prevented us from doing at our usual rate. We drove up the GW Parkway and then back home via Virginia 7. We ended up having such a great time that I thought I'd try out this fancy blog feature on my new website to share what we did in case others might be interested in taking a similar journey. It's really more of a photo essay than a blog though - I wanted to keep it simple for both your benefit and mine!

Thanks for visiting my first "blog"! ~ Dawn

Thanks, Mira! I was so hungry by the time my burger arrived that it was *almost* the best part of my day. And that slice of gouda was MASSIVE!
