North from the Carolinas

Thursday, Feb 21, 2008

When we left Linda's sister' we were headed north to Virginia. We soon passed through Kannapolis, the birthplace of Dale Earnhardt. In addition to having a street named for him in Kannapolis, this is the start of the Dale Trail.



We soon arrived at the Virgina border. We were a week late for Valentine's day but Virginia is for Lovers. We had three items to accomplish here. Visit friends on Smith Mountain Lake, visit the site of General Lee's surrender at Appomattox and of course, photograph the state capitol in Richmond. We found a few more interesting sites along the way.



As we came farther north, the temperature dropped and the thermometer read a chilly 32 degrees as we pulled in to visit our friends on Smith Mountain Lake. We received a warm reception from our friends, though and enjoyed the visit.
