Tuesday before Old Dominion--October 4th, 2016

Mrs Blog and I drove to Virginia Beach by way of US17 from Fredericksburg to the bridge crossing over to the Norfork/Virginia Beach side of Tidewater. We stopped at George Washington's Birthplace National Monument. It's a real nice place. The atmosphere is quiet and serene. Far different from the I-95 and I-64 corridor craziness. If you like history, I highly recommend it. Listening to the Ranger give a talk on Washington's early life, both Mrs Blog and I were struck by contrast between Washington and the choices in the 2016 Presidential election...
