A bit of catch-up………….

Hello!!!! So glad you’re still around!! To continue a bit of itinerary……we took a tour at Thomas Jefferson’s home in Virginia…”Monticello”. So interesting and brings history to a reality! IMG_6914IMG_6915 IMG_6924IMG_6920

Next, we headed to (Lexington, VA) The Stitchin’ Post and friend Erin.IMG_6932    You can read about how we met here. Her shop has so many facets…..something that would satisfy so many creative bents!!!! The entry……..IMG_6930 IMG_6931     Don’tcha just luv a “yarn bombing”????? Continuing to the sweet quilt shop on the edge of town and “The Quiltery”. IMG_6933IMG_6935IMG_6935And, yes, I did buy a few things……but those photos will have to wait til we return home and I get a bit organized.

Next, we headed to York, Maine, for a quick visit/afternoon with a gal who attended school with DH years ago. She and hubbs had a lobster bake planned for our time with them, so off we went to Foster’s…….. IMG_6950   Starting off with the best chowda ever!!!!! (above) and continuing to the clams, lobster…and much more!!!!! IMG_6952IMG_6953IMG_6954 You definitely need a bucket for this kind of yummy-ness!!!! IMG_6960 And, to finish, a warm Maine blueberry streusel cake!

Continuing our fun-packed day, we headed over to the USS Albacore Park and Museum to tour the submarine. (I was working very hard on putting to rest my tendency toward claustrophobia!!!) IMG_6961 IMG_6964 IMG_6966

Quite the experience and I don’t think there could have been any more packed into the day! We definitely slept well that night!!!!

    You are having a great time on your trip. Lovely quilty friends and shops.
    We are heading off on holiday today after a weekend away with members of an association we are involved with. This time a week on the Norfolk Broads. Lovely and relaxing. 🙂

  8. Wow, this is a mega road trip you are on. I’m loving every “report.”

  9. LB says:

    so let me get this straight: you started the day in Monticello and Lexington, and still made it to Maine for dinner?

  10. It’s been years since I visited Monticello but that was one of my absolute favorite vacations ever. The yarn bicycle is surely a one of a kind!

      The bicycle was so gorgeous and will get a “re-do” cuz the weather has taken a bit of a toll………as had other things. Erin’s shop is a wonderful example of a dream that became reality….of so many teaching opportunities (for young up-and-coming seamstresses, especially!!!). She has classes for 8 y.o.+ in sewing/quilting plus knitting, etc and a wonderful venue for consignment art. Totally stimulating to visit!!!!!! Montecello was awesome…especially after visiting Mount Vernon previously and comparing the two. Thanks for stopping by….sending hugs………
