Honeymoon Road Trip

We're back from our honeymoon road trip, and we're recovering after a lot of traveling through two states (North Carolina and Virginia). Three if you count Maryland. But we're not counting, because we didn't stop there.

Our first stop was in Chapel Hill (North Carolina), followed by Norfolk, Cape Charles, Jamestown and Williamsburg (all in Virginia), and an afternoon in Alexandria (also in Virginia).

We strolled through a botanical garden and an arboretum, learned a little bit of history, relaxed at the beach, spotted a shuttle launch, crossed the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel twice, ate a lot of sea food and walked the streets of Colonial Williamsburg. Trevor drove over 1000 miles (1600 km.) and somewhere in there we celebrated six months of marital bliss and counted our blessings.

We also bought our first Christmas ornament as a married couple, courtesy of the only country in the world that has Christmas stores open all year long. And I added three new mugs to my collection, because who knows when I'll ever find mugs with dancing kitties and French chefs again.

  1. How lovely! I like the fact there is a place that sells Christmas things all year long! I look forward to buying my first ornament as a married couple!
