Yesterday we arrived in beautiful Virginia and on the way to our new campsite, we took a side trip through “Skyline Drive,” which was designed so that people could enjoy the lovely views of the rural Shenandoah Valley. From this vantage point high on the mountain, they say it looks like a folk-art painting – with brush strokes of farms, homes, forests and little businesses. We stopped at the Signal Knob Overlook to take a peek at the town below and it was such a beautiful sight! Even though people say that the view is losing its folk-art character as more and more houses and businesses are being built, it still looks gorgeous when viewed from this distance. But still, it is important to keep in mind the impact that communities have on places like this… these lovely views can be ruined by what happens far below, so there is a delicate balance that needs to be maintained do that people and nature can live together in harmony. ?❤️?????
After settling into our campsite we helped Mummy straighten up the trailer and got ready for our friend, ms. Nicole. We were sooo excited to be seeing her! She has been a friend of ours on our webpage for such a long time and we were FINALLY getting to see her. It was a lovely visit with lots of licks and belly rubs and then we had to say goodbye… that is always the hardest part. We know we can keep up with each other through posts, and Mummy said we might even come back this way one day!
It’s time to plan another day of exploring and then we are off again… next stop, West Virginia!
