North Carolina Bound: Day 9!

Sunday was the final day of the trip! Sad to see it end, but such an amazing trip. Eleven states and 2900+ miles. Quite the adventure!

We cruised through Kentucky! It is beautiful country. This is a thoroughbred retirement farm.

Kentucky is just really pretty. It was one of my favorites:)

And the bridge out of town. Please excuse the untimely bug death on the windshield.

We went to Tamerac! It’s a cool building full of artisans and crafts made by West Virginians!! Definitely worth a stop:)

And we drive through Virginia; it’s possible I was sleeping…
And cute little Maggie was there to greet Gail! She was really excited!! (or so I’m told!)

My exit!!! Did a downpour really start 20 minutes from home?! We have had great weather minus the rain at the beginning of the trip.

This song came on my iPod as I turned onto my street:)

And someone hopped into the car! Why hello there little man:)

The whole trip was an absolute blast. I hope you’ve enjoyed riding along with me. Gail has been the absolute best travel partner! I cannot thank her enough:) We have laughed across eleven states!!
