We left Washington this morning and traveled to Annapolis where we crossed the Chesapeake Bay and drove south through the Eastern Shore of Maryland and Virginia. We crossed the Chesapeake Bay again at the 17- mile Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel over to Virginia Beach, Virginia where I lived when I first got married. Tomorrow we are finally heading back to Georgia.
Tomorrow is also Memorial Day, and I thought it would be appropriate to post an image from Arlington National Cemetery where we spent several hours on Thursday. This image is just one of the best representations why we have Memorial Day as a federal holiday. Look for more about my trip over at History Is Elementary.
