This past weekend we took a road trip down to Appomattox, VA for an Civil War Reenactment, we have gone down the past couple of years to this event, in preparation for the 150th anniversary of the surrender next year. It was a great drive avoided the interstate on the way down and just followed a highway that went through small towns and the country side. I had a great time, the friends in the second car in our caravan were not as entertained and just wanted to get there. Too bad they couldn’t read a map and didn’t have directions. Hehehe.
I am once again rushing to get a Doctor Who scarf done, I always have one on the needles these days. Not complaining just stating. Having a 12 foot scarf to work on was nice since I didn’t need to pack multiple projects to keep me busy during the battles. We lucked out with out camp location, I could see the battle from under the fly at camp, which means I didn’t have to hike up and down a few of the rolling hills they have down in Virginia. Yes that is smoke from the cannon at the top of the photo.
Here are a couple more shots from the weekend…
On the way home we did end up taking the Interstate, cut about 2 hours of our drive time but not nearly as interesting of a drive. We had to stop for some encouragement (ice cream) to keep ourselves awake we did have the windows down too, enjoying the 80 degree weather. I love having the windows down. It was a good end to a fun weekend and I am 3/4 of the way through the scarf. Smiles all around.
