It's a cool, sunny Saturday today. Thanks to God! It's another beautiful day to be out of the house. Far away from Hampton Roads, even for six-seven hours, at least. Yes, folks, my wife and I took another road trip to northwest Virginia, particularly in Charlottesville or C-ville, for short.
Reason/s for the short visit? To give our daughter her eyeglasses that were ordered for her less than two weeks ago. And coincidentally to meet our son there from DC to give him some car papers/documents he needs in connection with his application for a new DC tag.
On our way to C-ville, we dropped by at Totoy's Filipino Restaurant where we bought some food to go. We also bought my favorite "bibingka" or glutinous rice cakes. But of course, I brought with me my camera to capture anything that fascinated me outside.
Now, friends, I'm sharing with you our sunny Saturday to/from C-ville (A Short-time Family get-together) in pictures.
Myself in the family room while my wife was preparing some stuff to bring with us to C-ville.
Approaching the tunnel, my wife reduced her speed, turned on her headlights, and stayed focused...
|Ah, where's the end of a tunnel? There...the white light... we're almost out there. Claustrophobic? Not really. But, thanks to God it's not that crowded inside the tunnel, as you can see.|
|As we cruised along interstate highway, we passed by this sign. Traffic was smooth. Not many cars on the road...clear, bright, beautiful day...|
|Finally, after almost three hours on the road, including one rest stop at a rest area, we arrived at our destination and meeting place. We're all together, one family again...even for a short time.|
