Fall trip, 2015, places we visited
We flew on KLM from Florence (can’t say enough good things about KLM. Good airline) to Washington Dulles and spent a few nights in northern Virginia, then on to Virginia Beach. From there we went to Lake Gaston, NC, then Raleigh, NC. Back to Virginia Beach for one night and then along the eastern shore of Virginia and Maryland to Lewes, Delaware to catch the Cape May-Lewes ferry for Ocean City, New Jersey. (the ride along the eastern shore of Virginia and Maryland is very pretty and reassures you that agricultural America is still alive on the east coast) Leaving OCNJ we were back in northern Virginia, then flying back to Europe for a 6 day stop over in Amsterdam before returning to Italy. Put over 2000 miles on the rental car in the US.
Waiting at an impossibly early hour at the Florence airport. Thank you Tom and Cathy for getting us there.
Our old yard in northern Virginia (our house was torn down and this house was built). The new owners chose to follow our tradition of planting elephant ears.
Planter at Cameron Village, Raleigh, NC
Christmas lights, Cameron Village, Raleigh, NC
Oyster Shell recycling, Emerald Isle, NC
Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel
Entrance to the ferry. More about this later
Christmas decorations on city hall in Ocean City, NJ. I have heard that one of my Uncles started the tradition of decorating town hall.
All the whoop dee doo restaurants that are opening at Dulles airport, beyond security. So no hanging out with the folks who brought you to the airport.
Busy waterways in Amsterdam. (more about Amsterdam later)
This is your over view. Boring vacation pictures to follow.
