I’m back on the road again! It was a leisurely five hour drive in the rain yesterday to “Wild and Wonderful” West Virginia, where I enjoyed a visit with my friends, Mark and Norva. The creek near their home is running full (not flood stage, thank goodness) and I slept to the babbling music it provided. What a pleasant sound!
Maryland is a wonderful state! We have the Atlantic seashore, the Chesapeake Bay, the quaint little villages of the Eastern Shore, and the wonderful mountains, towns and lakes in the western portion—a little bit of everything! Even in the rain, Maryland shines!
Today I drove south through“Wild and Wonderful” West Virginia. The mountains, hills, and valleys were all shrouded in fog and mist for the first few hours. Then the sun broke through and what a sight—the light shining through the mist—a beautiful stained glass effect!
By late morning I crossed the Tug Fork River (it flows north forming the KY/WV border most of its way and flows into the Big Sandy River that makes the rest of the border between WV and KY. The Big Sandy River flows into the Ohio River where Ohio, KY and WV meet) into Kentucky. I wanted to stop at one of the many distilleries around Lexington (Kentucky Bourbon) and perhaps one of the beautifully manicured and fenced horse farms along the way, and the Daniel Boone homestead, but didn’t know exactly how to do that—so a gas station, McDonald’s (coffee only), a Roadside Rest Area, and a Kroger’s grocery were the stops of the day.
The good news is that the campground where I will spend the night has a “Catch and Release” fish pond. So, I can’t be reached! I’ve gone fishing!
