A Quick Trip

Before the long Labor Day weekend begins, Rick & I took a quick trip to Lexington, VA. Just a half day, over night but a nice little get away. Lexington is a small historic town, you will see Stonewall Jackson's name everywhere. We stayed at a Hampton Inn, but none like you have seen before. The original governor's home was kept as the main entrance with lobby area, breakfast area and some bedrooms. One of which we stayed in and then additional rooms were added to the back of the house. The entrance as you drive up to the hotel is filled with old trees.

We went into town and checked out a few of the shops, several were closed on Wednesday but open for weekends. There was a very nice co-op artists gallery, a new gallery about to open, nice shop with sporting gear, a few antique type shops and a couple unique shops. We stopped in Southern Inn for a little afternoon refreshments. Later that evening we went to The Red Hen for our anniversary dinner. They are small and reservations are recommended. We spoke to the chef and his wife briefly, they did a beautiful job at making our celebration memorable.

Looking forward to exploring that area again in the future. Plus, I got some great tree reference photos!
