When we left Virginia Safari Park on Saturday, we continued on to the Shenandoah National Park to drive the scenic Skyline Drive. We were late for peak foliage, but we managed to find a little color. (That gorgeous blue sky helped out quite a bit.)
We forgot our tripod, but, at one of the scenic overlooks, we saw a couple taking pictures of each other. So they took our picture, and we took theirs.
At one point, as we rounded a curve, I spotted a bear. Having never seen one other than at a zoo, Motor Man said later that my excitement was equal to that of a child’s.
Thankfully, my camera was in my lap, so I was able to snap some quick pictures of it.
“What? You’ve never seen a bear before?”
After that excitement, we drove on to Warrenton, where we stayed the night. The next day, we visited with my dear friend, Pam (Two Spoiled Cats) and her hubby, Dave. Pam and I met through blogging eight years ago, and for a while, our friendship was online only. But then we (along with her Davey and my Motor Man) began meeting a few times a year. Saturday, our visit with them began at a nearby farmers market.
The four of us then went to lunch and later browsed through an antique mall.
We then spent some time at their home, and their gorgeous big boy kitty, Teddy briefly joined us.
Motor Man and I avoided the interstate and took a leisurely drive home late Sunday afternoon.
It was one of those special weekends, full of fun times with lots of memories made.
