Skyline Drive

On Sunday, the last day we would be with the kids, we decided to drive up on the Skyline Drive and take in about 40 miles of twists and turns so that we could see some scenery. After the rains from Hannah the day before, the morning dawned bright and sunshiny and promised to let us do just that.

The kids came out to the camp about 10:30 and we drove up Afton Mountain to the parkway. We stopped at several overlooks and took pictures. Jocelyn filled us in on what we were looking at because I don't know one mountain range from another or one valley from another. On the one side we were looking at the Shenandoah Valley which is really beautiful.

When we got to Loft Mountain, we stopped and visited the gift shop. Then we drove up to the campground for a look and to check out whether Phaeton Place would fit in any spots. Actually, she would, but I don't think I want to take her up there. A smaller motorhome would be perfect.

On our way back from the campground, we visited the amphitheatre where I was able to snap some pictures of Ronan. He sure is a sweetie and we love him and his parents very much.

We are now in our site at the Mercer County Fairgrounds in Celina, Ohio, where we are gathering for a "reunion" of our 2005 full-timing group. Then next week is the eastern gathering for the Gypsy Journal Rally. I'm sure that will be lots of fun. We were greeted by much cooler temperatures today when we arrived. It is supposed to stay that way through tomorrow, then get a little warmer during the days. Good rally weather because we don't have full hookups and with the dogs, we like it to be cooler.

Till next time. . .
