Vacation Journal, Part 1

Sunday, May 18th

We arrived in Luray safe and sound. It is such a beautiful drive! Jeremy took some great landscape pictures as he was driving. What magnificent beauty! On the way, we stopped at a gas station and saw this truck that was covered in mud. Jeremy had to get a picture! After three hours, we pulled into the gravel drive of the Shenandoah River House, and there she was. The house is an old, white, two-story farmhouse filled with old photos and antique furniture. There are three bedrooms, five fireplaces, a huge sun room, and thankfully only one small TV. No, it's not some fancy resort, but moments after pulling into the driveway, as I stood in the backyard listening to the sounds of the river, I felt completely relaxed. That, I say, is priceless. After a quick trip to the town Walmart (Thank God there was a Walmart!)for supplies for the week, we are settling in for our first night in the river house.
