Headed Up The Road

Thank you for all the well wishes for my travels today. I left the house at 5am to meet up with my friend Susan and we headed up 95 to our first stop of the day.



The cute little town of Ashland, VA.



We met our friend Mary Ann and her friend Beth for a late breakfast and an early lunch and gab session.



Quiche and fruit. Yum! It was the perfect meet up place and so nice to catch up with friends.
After that Susan and I hopped back in the car to our next stop.



The Strawberry Sampler in Glen Mills, PA. Here is Susan. She looks ready to shop doesn't she?
I was hoping that I would find one of these inside



I was not disappointed. So you know I will be drooling over the designs tonight in my hotel room.
After checking in Susan and I found a lovely small local place to have dinner. We had some lovely comfort food and we are calling it a night.
Tomorrow it is off to the Chester County exhibit, lunch with friends and then to the Philadelphia Art Museum. Yahoo!

Sweet dreams and thanks for tagging along.

I live in Ashland, VA! I work across the street from the train station at Randolph-Macon College and in the other direction, 1 block away is my home! I hope you enjoyed your short stay in "The Center of the Universe" (tag line for the town).

Safe Travels,
