All Good Things Come To An End

Our vacation/road trip is over, and now we're just unpacking and trying to recuperate.  Below are some random pictures and thoughts about our trip.

We love old architecture, especially old churches. Below is a picture of an old church building in Menasha, Wisconsin. Because of how crowded older streets are, we couldn't get far enough away from the church to get the whole thing in the picture, but it was a beautiful building.

Did you know that if on a very humid day you wear flip flops while walking in the grass of St. John's Episcopal Church in Richmond, Virginia, there's a good chance a wasp will sting you on your foot?

We love Wegmens grocery stores, even though they didn't have what we specifically went there to get. Sandy learned about Wegmens when she would visit her daughter, who used to live in the Buffalo, New York area.

This Confederate jacket was in the Civil War Museum in Richmond. If you look closely, you can see a bullet hole on the soldier's left side of the jacket right where his heart would have been. So sad.

It is so stinkin' hot and humid in the south, and yet the dress below was what the women wore back then. We don't know how they did it. 

And a couple more pictures of Sandy's granddaughter at her graduation.

Even though we could get used to maid service every morning, we're glad to be home.

During this four week road trip, we learned that we have about a three-week travel stamina.

There will be more trips in the future, maybe even some more four week ones. Edie's already planning them.
