Road Trip!!!

Here we are, in the middle of the forest.  The past two days, we have seen scenery that is my mental image of what Heaven must be like.  I know, it sounds like a John Denver song, but it’s true!  We are in Virginia, in the gorgeous Shenandoah Valley.  After much struggle to locate a rather hidden RV park, we have bunkered down for 4 days.  We have only intermittent Internet and Cell service, but that’s kinda nice, actually.  We need a bit of a “fast” from all things electronic now and then.  Jim and I are in what we are now referring to as our “honeymoon cottage” — the 40 foot motorhome that has become our home away from home.  Tonight, we built a campfire and roasted giant marshmallows!  After we ate the gooey goodness, we threw a packet of “mystical fire crystals” on the fire, which turned the flames the most beautiful shades of green, blue, turquoise and purple.   They burned like that for a long time!  Apparently, the crystals were copper nitrate.  Not good to eat, but lovely to see.
