Is there anything better than taking a spontaneous turn, only to find another unexpected surprise?

We saw a sign for “Abingdon Winery” on the way out of out of Virginia, and say no more, we promptly exited off the interstate for a mid-day wine tasting. On the way there, we found another surprise…

We stopped at a back road for a photo op and found this little gem instead: an unmarked trail leading to a waterfall hidden between rocks and trees.

In case our day wasn’t random enough, Stephen- one of our co-pilots- left to pick up his Delorean from home and to rejoin us later on in Sevierville, Tennessee. We’re going #backtotheFuture. By golly it’s #1985. #flux capacitor

We found the friendliest diner (appropriately named The Diner) with the cutest owners. They dropped by for a chat and to offer free desert to the out-of-towners. We couldn’t complain.

We left D.C. in the morning and spent the day driving along the winding contours of the Blue Ridge Parkway through Northern Virginia.

Virginian ham, apple cider donuts at Apple House, Virginia

George from the U.K. got his first dose of the American fast food experience. It occurred to him that you actually drive through a drive-thru, as opposed to driving pass the restaurant in its entirety. 4 frozen custards and a scene from Lost In Translation later, we made another stop at the Apple House Linden, VA, for sandwiches stuffed with Virginian ham, home-made apple cider donuts, and… Davy Crocket.

Just us, nature and our little car.
