Back roads and bliss....

 While visiting Lynn in Virginia we took an overnight trip to Leesburg and stayed in a wonderful, historic B & B called the Norris House.  We had a great time traveling the back roads to Leesburg ...
This is the B&B we stayed at...we really enjoyed our visit there and met some interesting folks...there were two British couples staying and I was very happy to hear that they were really enjoying their visit and thought we (Americans) were very friendly and kind.

 We shopped 'til we dropped...or at least I dropped, I think Lynn could have kept goin' ... she is like the energizer bunny !  I just tried to keep up :))   There were a number of cute shops and I think we saw every one, we tried to anyway!

 For dinner, we decided to splurge at the Eiffel Tower Cafe.  It is a top rated restaurant, the courtyard is beautiful but  the best thing there was the waiter.  His name was Marc and he was cute, entertaining, gracious and funny.


Lynn has posted other photos on her blog, so if you want to see more head on over The Vintage Nest.

 Thanks for visiting with me and ya'll come back!

Francie, it looks like you and Lynn had the best time, her house is how imagined it. I don't think I have seen pictures of the inside....Wish you had sneaked and taken some more! My son calls my internet friends my imaginary friends....Not anymore, not when you see them face to face!
