Alli, Barnacle, and I went on a little getaway to southwestern Virginia. We drove down on Friday, and drove along Skyline Drive in Shenandoah and then a long way down Blue Ridge Parkway. It was beautiful and mystical in the fog and rain.
We stayed at a lovely guesthouse called Pondview Guesthouse in the bustling metropolis of Meadows of Dan, Virginia.
We spent most of the rainy Saturday lazing at home, playing Terra Mystica, tending to the fire, and snuggling. Just before dark we finally left the house and went for a short hike at Rocky Gap. It was really pretty, and having to walk through a foggy cow pasture made us think of alpine meadows in Europe.
