Looking at the pictures, I understand just how taking a break helps with 'keeping the spark' in my long relationship with Virginia's totally awesome theme park. I understand, because I really really, really want to go. I know it's only going to get worse when the Howl-O-Scream ads start streaming from the local television channels.
Everything from wildlife preservation to the wildest rides (Griffon, anyone?), wonderful food and world class landscaping, and friendly employees from all over the world.
Ahh, I can smell the waffle cones cooking now. Or the barbeque pit at the Trappers Village in New France (juicy grilled chicken while we watch the Griffon, anyone?). Ooo, or the brats and brews at Oktoberfest's Festhaus. Oh, and the stew at Groghan's in Ireland...now I HAVE to go so I can get pictures of all that. Where to go first?!
Until then, I hope some of these pictures help bring the place to life a bit.
I'll add more later. I will be spending the day with PurpleNonna tomorrow for our once a week meet and clean-a-house which has been going on for about 15 years.
PurpleNonna always has some roundabout wisdom, and a kookiness I just adore. We have been friends for 17 years, with some missing ones in between. I always look forward to Thursdays with PN.
See you tomorrow! I'm trying for a 365 day streak. Wish me luck.
