Happy Labor Day

Hey, hope everyone is enjoying the holiday weekend. I went down to Irvington Virginia for a relaxing visit to Tides Inn. The little Chesapeake Bay resort is a good quick getaway. We overlooked the marina and met some really nice people from Newport News to Vienna. The weather was picture perfect, ate most of our meals outside. We were next to a small town I’m quite fond of.. Kilmarnock. A little more than a year ago I stayed in the town’s Inn. I seriously felt like I was in a movie back in colonial times. I just love this stuff. True little old town America.
