Good-Bye Maine: Driving South with Melissa

Monday: We left Maine with lots of hugs and tears, always want to stay. Sister Melissa is riding back with us so lots of fun for AA!Monday, we drove through ME, NH, MA, CT, NY, NJ and stayed the night in PA. It was unbelievably cold - 56 degrees! Dreary day! No photos, didn't stay anywhere that was photo worthy! The Mexican restaurant for dinner was pretty average - borderline bad! (Chambersburg, PA). We had a decent breakfast and then drove to Front Royal (didn't stop in the Shenandoah National Park), on to Chancellorsville - Monticello. Glad we stopped there, had wanted to 20+ years ago when we toured several wineries, so this was GREAT to see Thomas Jefferson's home. We learned so much and wish we had the whole day to visit (there was a slave tour and grounds/garden tour that was included in our "home" tour ticket that we couldn't take advantage of). The original front of the Jefferson home:

Privee vent!!
Slave home and stable:
Waiting for the shuttle: from the visitor center to the home:
We then drove to Rocky Mount, NC for the night at a Residence Inn by Marriott (good happy hour!). It was great!
