Thankful Sunday--September 8, 2013

or Vacation, Day One

I am thankful I got away for a few days with my family.
With our various work and school schedules, it is hard to coordinate time off together. Recently we were able to take advantage of the rare situation of coinciding schedules and take a vacation for a few days.

We had nothing specific planned for the first day except reaching our hotel by nightfall. So we went where the spirit moved us. Sometimes that was off the beaten path.

We explored little towns.

We did a family favorite and watched trains go by as we ate lunch.

We hiked along the C & O Canal.

We visited antique stores looking for old tools and clocks.

We visited a museum and historical site chronicling life in the Laural Highlands for the last 300 years.

And then we found our hotel and a very good Mexican Restaurant.  We had a fun-filled, lazy day which was a great change of pace for all of us.
