.... how can the drive to Natural Bridge take five hours and the drive back take nine when there is no traffic? Well this answer is Carma and Michael did the "stop, shop and stroll" all the way home. There is a great book fair just outside of Harrisonburg that is held six times a year, one of which is always Thanksgiving weekend so this has become a bit of a ritual. This year in addition to many cookbooks I also got some DYI construction references and a biography of Colette by Judith Thurman. We staggered out of there under the extreme weight of our purchases.
My youngest brother is getting married next September so some time was spent scouting locations for his rehearsal dinner (and I think it's going to be crazy outrageous fun, but the details will have to wait). And finally, we had a sweet little dinner at Johnny Appleseed in New Market, Virginia.
There was much food and fun on this trip so make sure to check back.
