Parting Is Such Sweet Sorrow

Today may be the last day of this adventure together but it ain't over yet! We didn't hike today but we made the best of the 8-10 waking hours we had together. Tammy's son, Daryn, and two of his buddies flew over from their military training base to spend the day with us. After stopping at the post office to ship some of our extra items home, for me it was those d--n Mahjong tiles, we headed to the little municipality airport to meet Daryn and his buddies. After that we went to a great little farmers market in Harrisonburg and then to lunch. After lunch we went to a lavender farm in the area. They had chickens, pigs, goats, horses, Lamas, and beautiful gardens.

Then we headed to the Grand Caverns to explore the underground.

After all that adventure it was time for Daryn and his friends to head back and it was so close to our cocktail hour we had to say goodbye. Tonight is the night of Supermoon, so we sat with our wine and watched the most beautiful moon rise in the sky. Then we played a fun game of SpotIt.
Tammy, Melissa, Joanne, and Sue have to get up at 3am to catch their planes out of Charlottesville so we wrapped up our trip by recording our goodbyes and final memories of the trip.
Thank you to everyone who came along with us by reading our blog, we appreciate your comments and we read them all. Just knowing you were sharing our experience made it all that more fun!


  1. Mary, Reading your blog and viewing the photos was a truly charming armchair adventure. Now I need to go to Vermont in October. How lovely. You all seem to enjoy each other and your travels so much. Yes, I would agree that you ladies are indeed blessed. I think whenever we experience gratitude the whole world benefits, so thank you one and all. Have you decided on next years adventure?

  2. Oops, I'm not 'unknown'. LOL!
