The wife and I are looking to get out tomorrow and seeing something different. We're in PWC and would prefer to stay within an hour drive. I doubt we'll do a winery unless there is an outstanding reason to do so. Any thoughts? Oh yeah, she started her annual South Beach diet a couple days ago so no Chocolate Lover's fest or anything similar.

Lol. The old saying 'The bigger they are the harder they fall" applies very well to me. 6'5 and 250 here. This guy no longer gets on any type of skates. Thanks for all the suggestions though.

It's too late for you two to do this today (you're probably already up and out), and it's a little more than an hour's drive away, but we really enjoyed our excursion to Charlottesville last autumn. There's a fun little pedestrian-only downtown, interesting things to see and do, and even a great children's museum if you're going with kids. We'll be going back again.

We need to get our "What's Going On Around Town" list going again. The person who kept it going needs to come back from vacation (hint hint you know who you are! ) I know there's a lot more things to do today than just the few we listed here.

BTW, the Big Apple Circus is going to be here in two weeks. I guess they figure the snow will be gone, because it's an old fashioned circu that pitches a tent. If you've never been, it's my idea of the perfect circus. Smaller than Barnum and Bailey, so you can see all the performers up close. Not a lot of animal acts, more of a heavy emphasis on acrobatics. And the clowns are funny (Which isn't always the case with circuses).

We decided to just take a leisurely drive. If you can call the typical traffic around here leisurely. We drove to Mt. Vernon then down the GW Pkway along the river. We visited Old Town briefly then drove on to Gravelly Point to get some pics of planes taking off. From there we drove through DC and ended up at National Gaylord for lunch. From here we drove home in surprisingly fairly light traffic on 95. Not a bad day at all.
