Let slow ride days begin! We are off to Washington, DC today for a week and I have been look forward to this trip for weeks. It's been a long difficult to semester that has the latest with company that I do truly cherish. I'm excited to have this week off and see our nation's capital from a different perspective. I'm traveling down with Mark it's going to be about 8 1/2 hours. We had to make it drop by Greenfield so that I could finish up a couple loose ends. I have to admit it was nice seeing the family one more time before I headed out. The trip has been a blast as we headed through New York There was some great graffiti and amazing views. Attached you will see one of the more unique graffiti pieces along with some shots of the George Washington Bridge. It was really exciting and quite the experience. In Baltimore we passed through Baltimore harbor tunnel were Mark told me to hold my breath and make a wish. So long brain cells I will miss your company but if I'm lucky I’ll get that wish despite the fact Mark tried to sabotage it
by slowing down at the end of the tunnel. We stopped by a gas station name Sheets, and I finally got my eggnog mom! They had this make your own milkshake machine that was incredible. Insert a cup, press a button and lifter did the rest. I have to admit it sounded like an airplane taking off but it was fun. Once we arrived we drove around the capital to see some of the sights. When we got in it was late so we chatted with Marks mother Judy for a bit and headed to bed. Though we closed our eyes knowing that we had an 8:30am wake up it was nice to rest my head somewhere new.
I have spent most of my life in Vermont, and much of it dreaming of the chance to come to Landmark College. With one semester left at Landmark I find myself unsure as to where I am to go when that dream is over. This trip is a chance to just enjoy the journey and find the here and now. I'm going down south for 3 weeks and traveling around parts of Georgia and North Carolina.... full info
