The Drive Home

So, after our Disney vacation was over we began the looong drive home on Saturday. The first day was very smooth and we made it to a very nice (and very new) hotel in North Carolina that was right next to a winery. As it turns out, the hotel is owned by the winery and has a wine bar and everything. It was a very pleasant (and very brief) stay and we are thinking about perhaps going back sometime to stay and tour the winery. It would be a very nice drive in the fall after the trees have changed color.

Although, after our second day I'm not sure I could take that drive for quite some time. The second day seemed to drag on *forever* and right about 4:00pm I was sick of driving. We didn't get home until about 10:30pm that night. You can imagine how long those 6.5 hours felt...

The only good thing about the second day was the brief stop at the New River Gorge Bridge in West Virginia. Our CAA route actually told us to avoid highway 19 due to excessive speed enforcement, but we took it anyway because it was shorter. I'm glad we did because that was probably the most picturesque part of the entire drive. We stopped at the scenic rest area here and I took a few pictures.

After that it was just grinding away the miles until we were home. It's good to be back.
