Huntington, WV

Yesterday we visited friends in Durham, NC. Yoshi was our minister a number of years ago when their daughters were quite young. We got to be acting-grandparents for the girls because they didn't have any grandparents who lived close. 

We had a wonderful time. We visited all day into the evening - we haven't seen them for over a year and a half. We introduced the girls to Mexican Train and visited more - it was fun to catch up. We enjoyed some great food - lunch at Guglhupf, a European Bakery, popsicles at Locopops, Did you know there are gourmet popsicle shops?! We didn't. and Amy fixed a fantastic steak salad for dinner. 

Today we began heading towards home. We drove across the Piedmont section of North Carolina and headed north  past Pilot Knob,

and on through Virginia and most of West Virginia. Tonight we are in Huntington, WV. Our rental is very close to Marshall University. For the last three days, the weather has been uncomfortably warm. Today it was in the mid 80s - still quite warm but bearable. On the news tonight, they said it was now okay to take pets outside for a walk on the sidewalk/street. It's been so warm, the paved surfaces burned the pads of their feet. Tomorrow, we will travel on...

  1. You missed lovely weather, in the low 80's, this weekend. Hopefully you'll get home while it is still nice. Enjoy the trip.
