The first full day....

Happy Tuesday to you!  This is the first full week of August.  Does it look like a busy month ahead?  I know that schools are opening for a new school year in many locations.  That makes it sound like a short summer, doesn't it?

Now - to the first full day of our More Than A Vacation.

The Washington County, VA courthouse.

Just across the street from the courthouse.

Our first trip was to Abingdon, VA, just a short drive from the Emory and Henry campus.  Figaredo's was our first stop.

Outdoor seating was available.

Inside waiting area.

Sparkling kitchen area.

A special meeting room.

Decor on the walls of a larger gathering room.

More posters from Barter productions.

A view of the interior dining room.

 This was such a marvelous setting!  The Husband and I decided this was where we would return for lunch (we were on our own on this day), particularly since the management treated us to tastes of their specialty - Emerald Pizza!

Waiting for us to sample!

It was a really good beginning to the day!:-) 

To include the rest of the day would make this blog post too long, so stay around for the next one!

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.
