We made it!

Well, we made it safely back to Virginia. Sarah and Joe were off to continue their adventure, including a drive back to the Florida panhandle to get ready for a new school year.

What a trip! Posted by Picasa

It's a slow shopping day at the IGA. This is actually the back entrance, and the store really is open for another hour. Posted by Picasa

It was just our luck that all the Mexican places in town (Bearritos and Moseys) were closed. Bummer. Posted by Picasa

Mountain Market, Haines

We had a nice lunch at the Mountain Market. The IGA has more selection, but the Mountain Market is the place to go for health foods and specialty items. Posted by Picasa
