Vacation Update

Hanna+MikeAlready Sunday night again. At least we don't have to go to work tomorrow so that's something positive. But only 2 more days here (Monday and Tuesday) and then Wednesday we drive back up to Connecticut. Thursday it's back to work. Trying not to think about that just yet. 

Had a nice stay here so far. On Friday we went wine tasting which was a lot of fun. Went to five different wineries on the Chesapeake Wine Trail, bought 8 bottles of wine plus a bottle of garlic infused Greek olive oil. Yesterday we went on a day trip to the Outer Banks in North Carolina. Such a pretty region. Went to the Wright Brothers site and also to Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. 

Today we went to Virginia Beach and explored some nature trails in the morning, then had lunch at the Yardhouse and in the afternoon went to the aquarium. The weather has been perfect for most of the time we have been here. The next couple of days it's supposed to be a little unstable though. We will see.

Tomorrow we will head to the Monticello, Thomas Jefferson's home, about a 2 hour drive from where we are. 

Mail Update: Mailed letters on Friday night to: Carmen/Malta, Emilia/Finland, Celia/MA and Received letters/still owe a response to: Lotte/Denmark, Charles/TN and Nina/WA.
