Skyline Drive & Shenandoah Heritage Market

Today is July 4th and we are at the Williamsburg KOA. Happy 4th of July everyone.

Today’s post is a little delayed.

I’m finding it difficult to upload pictures to my blog because the campgrounds in the areas in Virginia we’ve been staying in have limited WIFI. My personal Internet through T-Mobile also has been limiting my internet capabilities. I can easily check email but uploading pictures is a crapshoot.

June 27 Harrisonburg KOA. We liked Harrisonburg KOA and the surrounding areas.

We decided to take a ride on Skyline Drive.

Again, our America The Beautiful pass got us free entry into the park. We entered the park at the Swift Run Gap entrance and got off the parkway at the Thorton Gap Station, a total of 34 miles.

Swift Run Gap Entrance Station (mile 65.5) by Rt. 33 near Elkton, Virginia.

Thornton Gap Entrance Station (mile 31.5) by Rt. 211 near Luray, Virginia.

We see a momma dear and her babies. Momma was on one side of the road and babies were on the other.

Unfortunately, Benji and Bella started barking and momma dear thought it was best for them to run into the wooded area.

I wonder if they serve Mimosa’s on Mimosa Lane. Wonder who came up with that name?

The sky started to darken but it did not rain on us. One thing I realized when traveling any road in any mountain range is you can’t go by the sky. It could storm at any time. One minute you are heading towards a sunny sky and as soon as your round a curve, you are heading towards dark skies.

On Saturday, we decided to go for a ride. We went hunting for a farm market. Hubby likes farm markets. We found the Shenandoah Heritage Market.

I went in while Hubby and the pups waited in the truck.

Hubby was elated to see a “Bake Shop”. I bought Hubby his favorites. Oatmeal Walnut Cookies and Strawberry Rhubarb pie.

Not only was this a Farm Market, but it was also somewhat a tourist attraction.

More to come as soon as I get better WIFI.

God Bless, Stay Safe and Be Kind to Every Kind.
