On Saturday April 9 we set off toward home. We do the trip over three days and stay two nights in hotels. It was a nice day for driving. We headed north on the Interstate 95 and listened to the Masters Golf on Sirius XM radio. Scenes of Florida greenery passed by the window.
Later we stopped for lunch on a small dirt road. We had brought sandwiches. I took our little dog for a walk down the dirt road. I saw a large tree with the most Spanish Moss I have ever seen on a tree.
We drove on to Columbia South Carolina where we stayed for the night. The next day we got off to an early start. My travel mascot George the Horse was enjoying the ride I think. Here is a short video of him listening to some Bluegrass music!
We could see that spring was arriving with lots of dogwood trees in bloom. But the farther north we drove we saw less and less green. Once we were in West Virginia we were winding through mountains and some impressive tunnels.
In some respects the tunnels are a metaphor for life. We need to know there is light at the end of that tunnel! And some tunnels seem endless. But at the end you are out in the light again.
There are some big rigs on their way to somewhere. I know they are driven by professionals but I always want to move on and get past them.
Some all terrain vehicles were getting a ride on a trailer.
There were some steep descents as the road twisted and turned through the mountains.
These terraces look amazing
We had some snacks along the way. Yes, I know they are not the healthiest choices. I eat the pork skins and my husband has the beef jerky!
We arrived safely home on April 11 by late afternoon. There are snow flurries forecast over the weekend!
