Yes!!!!! It’s really me!!!………….

Just a quick recap……This morning, we left the Outer Banks (OBX)…..sob……and headed up the coast into Virginia and the Chesapeake Bay. Going from Newport News to So. Hampton Roads we traveled on I664 through the Monitor-Merrimac Memorial Bridge-Tunnel. Never done that??? How ‘bout grabbing a cuppa and check out a video (not mine) that will give you a good idea of the crossing. Our goal was an early afternoon meet-up with dear bloggy friend, Wendy (Ivory Spring blog), and a few moments of catching up on news……….IMG_6906      With busy schedules, our time was limited and DH and I hit the road with Culpeper, VA, as our overnight destination.

The motel check-in was fast and we headed out to find the “Minuteman Mini Mall” antique shop. So much fun and so little time. As usual, I was on a hunt for linens to quilt. I managed to ‘score’ this piece………….IMG_6912       It’s 26” in diameter and, again, the ideas are swirling……..but my machines are so far away!!!!!!! More time to dream and plan………

Suppertime came and we headed to the historic downtown area…..IMG_6907IMG_6909 IMG_6910

Seafood was the goal and catfish (DH) and shrimp (me) was found at the Davis Street Pier restaurant…….IMG_6908     Following that great meal, a short jaunt was in order and the downtown area provided the diversion…….including a cute little——-yup!—-quilt shop!IMG_6911 “That Little Quilt Shop”(their Fb is here) was the name and, although my purchase was minimal, the time spent was fruitful. Along with a license plate………IMG_6913 I gathered some info on an embroidery module for my Bernina 440QE. Time will tell where that’s going……….
