A journal of sorts about family, hobbies and travels, mostly day trips Steve and I enjoy taking especially in my State of Virginia.
I love to especially explore and snoop in places off the beaten path.

Museum stroll

Friday was a good day to get the grands out for a stroll.   We went to the Virginia Museum of fine Arts.
Grabbed a pizza slice for Steve and Adalyn and she enjoyed it on the patio at the Museum cafe.
Then off for a stroll with Genevieve to see the water fall and a run around the garden area for Adalyn to tire them out,  I believe I am the one who was tired out.    The two girls never tired.


 
 
this is what is directly behind me as I was taking the picture above

A little history here about this beautiful old Victorian House.







6 over 9 pane window - I like how the wood around the glass  has detail unlike today where the outside windows are framed simply.
pretty intricate work above the windows and doors ,  the same as in the old photo several photos above
deck area of museum where we had a snack from the " Best Cafe".
 
 
 
water view from the deck

a walk up the steps next to water fall


Genevieve patiently watching

looking for the squirrel in the tree

A very big tree as you can see,  how old could this tree be?   It's huge
til next time
