Thanksgiving holiday 2008

We had another great Thanksgiving holiday this year.

Lorraine and I went to the Fairfax County Civilian Police Academy graduation on Saturday morning; Lorraine was on travel for the graduation day for our class, so this was a "make up" opportunity. Lorraine had an opportunity to fire the Sig Sauer 9mm pistol and the Remington 870P shotgun. We both had an opportunity to drive a high-speed precision driving course (this was significantly different than the driving opportunity for our CPA class). The driving course was a blast. We stayed for the "pot luck" lunch, which was also great.

Emily and Joe traveled to Virginia, arriving late Saturday afternoon. We stayed in Fairfax County until Tuesday late afternoon, then headed to Nelson County for the holiday.

Cindy and Paul joined us from Maine, Joe came from Washington, DC, and Hank and Nate drove from Maryland to join us at Rhue Hollow.

This year's Thanksgiving Day hike was to the top of Crabtree Falls. The weather was just about perfect.

Em, Joe, and I returned to Fairfax County last night, so they could catch their flight from Washington's National Airport this morning.
