With our first day of travel behind us,Kathryn and I were were ready to get on the road once again. the cats were not quite so sure they wanted back in that crate and we had to fish them out from underneath the bed.
It was so late when we arrived last night that I had no idea what it really looked like outside our hotel. I wanted to get up early and count a few birds, but I was just too exhausted and there was too much to do to reload the car and get on the road again. this view of the highway from the hotel parking lot was an indication of what lay ahead for us on this day. I was soon to learn that there is no such thing as a straight or level road in all of West Virginia! Since Kathryn had done so much of the driving yesterday, I elected to start off the day driving to give her a rest.
Before we left town we gassed up the car and grabbed a quick breakfast sandwich at a local fast food joint. as we sat in the parking lot eating, this is what we looked at across the street. I liked the architecture but I believe is is a Funeral Home!
But, we were in a hurry. There was somewhere we wanted to be!
It had been a year since I had seen my little grand-daughter and my son and his wife. How happy I was to see and hug them!
Then Alex burned some steaks for us while we sipped some wine on the back deck. It was such a relaxing way to end out day. we would be staying here for 2 nights so that we could spend some time with them. It was a good break for all of us!
Most of this day went by in a blur and I was so glad when we finally stopped! Oh, but there were nighthawks flying over the parking lot of our hotel as we pulled in! They were “peenting” as well. It was a glorious sight to behold!
