Day 5 in Virginia

After day 4 and 5 of our trip we reached into Virginia. This will be the last day with nice warm temperatures I guess. There are snow showers predicted for Maine! 
We didn't have time to stop at Nashville, TN nor other nice places. Home we shall go.
Along the road I took some snap-shots. There are many Eastern Red Bud's blooming. a very pretty view.

By 5 pm we reached a truck-stop some miles beyond the Tennessee/Virginia border where I could start supper. We had hamburgers with veggies.

Now we just relax.

Am 5. Tag unserer Reise sind wir bis nach Virginia hinein gekommen. Es wird wohl der letzte Tag mit sommerlichen Temperaturen sein. Leider hatten wir keine Zeit uns in Nashville, Tennessee umzusehen denn wir wollen ja schnell nach Hause.
Während der Fahrt habe ich ein paar Schnapschüsse gemacht. Die vielen blühenden Hartriegel- und Judasbäume säumen die Straße kilometer lang.
Um 17:00 Uhr erreichent wir einen Parkplatz der uns für die Nacht dienen soll. Hier habe ich dann auch gleich Abendessen gekocht: Frikadellen mit Gemüse und Kartoffeln.
Jetzt können wir uns ausruhen.

  1. I love the budding flowers. We've notice a lot of the trees are in bloom around here. They are so pretty. We've got a few nice days left before we hit the rainy Northwest. We're hoping we don't get the snow like you're expected to get.


I love getting a comment from you now and then. Be patient, they will appear, I just have to see first if they are OK to publish. No anonymous any more. I am getting too much spam.
