Big city ... bright lights

Spent the weekend in the D.C. area ... the heartbeat of the nation. Busy, exciting, historical.... Metro, shopping, traffic, people.... Truly a "big city, bright lights" weekend. Spent Saturday in Alexandria, Saturday night in McLean, Sunday at the Washington Zoo, Monday at the Allen-Webb debate. Exciting stuff going on in the Nation's Capitol.

However ...

I was ready to come home when my van turned toward the Valley late yesterday afternoon. I love the hustle and bustle about as much as anyone ... but I love the Valley more. Give me the mountains, less people, less traffic, the serenity, the quiet, the climate ... and did I mention the mountains....

The Shenandoah Valley ... nice to be back home.
