Weekend Trip

This is a personal wrap-up of this Memorial Day weekend. I share it with ds106 since ds106 was part of the weekend, and after all #ds106 is #4life.

I live in Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA. My wife and I have been itching for the opportunity for a short trip out of town for a while now. So, we made last minute reservations at the Charlotte Hotel in Onancock, VA on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. It’s about a 75 mile drive, including about 12 on the Cheseapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. Friday was rainy and windy, which made it stressful to cross the waters. Once we made over, we did the things we often do on these trips: thrift shops, book stores, antique shops, restaurants, old homes, etc.

Saturday was a great weather day, and a great day to wander around snapping photos. Bought a nice print at a consignment shop right across from our b&b style hotel. Dinner and drinks at the Blarney Stone Pub, also across the street.

On Sunday morning, our planned return day, we were called a bit early by our daughter, in the labor room ready to have our first grandchild! We, of course, packed up and returned home. Our granddaughter was born at 3:01 pm, about 2 1/2 hours after our arrival.

Since I was waiting in the waiting room with other family members, I took the opportunity to complete the Warhol design assignment.

So here’s a few pictures, both of the trip, the baby, and the work. Feel free to use them for your creative efforts, if you are so inclined.
