Scenes From Lexington

The weather this past weekend could not have been more perfect. So Motor Man and I made a quick decision to take an overnight trip to the mountains.

As I mentioned in Monday’s post, we went to Lexington (Virginia). We had three things in mind to do during our visit there:

1.) The Lexington Carriage Historical Tour.  I had recently learned about this in a post by my blogging and Facebook friend, Dor, who lives near Lexington.

Our guide/driver was Courtney, a fun, spirited young lady who is so knowledgeable about the town.  Her tour was simply wonderful, and we would suggest it to anyone  who visits Lexington. Our carriage was pulled by Pete (left) and Babe, the diva.

 There are so many beautiful historic homes in Lexington, including the Lee House, home to Robert E. Lee, president (1869-1870) of Washington & Lee University and all succeeding presidents of the college.

A brick stable for Lee’s horse, Traveller, was built on the property. The doors are left open at all times, to allow Traveller’s spirit to roam free.

2.)  The second thing we wanted to do was meet Dor and her husband, Bill, which we did. You can read about our visit with them in this post.

3.) And last, but not least, we I wanted to do some antiquing.  While Dor and I were at one of the antique malls in Lexington, Motor Man waited for us in the vehicle. I love this picture he took of one of the shop’s many kitties.

After our visit with Dor and Bill at their home, Motor Man and I stayed overnight in nearby Waynesboro and antiqued our way home on Sunday.
