For the past several days I have been posting about our experiences while at More Than A Vacation at Emory and Henry. I have mentioned that our "FL" (Fearless Leader) kept us very busy! Of course, she was very busy, too, because she was right along with us on all our jaunts, often having to drive her own vehicle to be the lead, or to stay behind to do the closing down of whatever we had done.
On Saturday, we were out once again "on the road."

Listed on the National Register of Historic Landmarks, as well as the Virginia Landmarks Register in 1997, restoration efforts have been underway. The above pictures show some progress that has been made in the chapel area.

This was only the beginning of our travels on that first Saturday in August. To include everything about that day into this one post would make it too long, so there is still more to come!
As for THIS past week-end, I was on the road once again on Saturday as I made an hour and fifteen minute trip to a nearby town for a UMW Social Action Workshop. The return trip lengthened to TWO hours due to heavy rainfall for much of the drive, plus an Interstate accident that had temporarily closed one of the lanes. Of course, it was in the lane going in the direction I was driving! I was very grateful to drive into the garage safely!
Thank you for reading. I really appreciate your comments.
