Well, the weekend is here and I bet you are wondering, “Where are they going this weekend?” Well, we are excited to tell you that we are returning to our favorite plantation, Belle Grove! We haven’t been there in about a month and we are really starting to miss it! We are going to head up there on Saturday morning. While we are there, we are going to do some more pictures and maybe even some videos. We haven’t been there since we videotaped the “Babies” (our ospreys) so we don’t know if they are still there or not. But we will find out tomorrow!
After we spend some time at the plantation, we are going to head into Fredericksburg. Believe it or not, we have never been into the historic part of town and we are looking forward to seeing what Fredericksburg has to offer! I have been working on the Civil War posting (coming next) and with the research; I have now become interested in seeing it for real!
I have to laugh about the Civil War posting. I had hoped to have it posted by Wednesday this week, but it just didn’t happen. I am not as familiar with the Civil War period, so I had to do some research and reading. So the more I read, the more I wanted to look into it deeper. So I got lost in research… well you understand. It happens every time.
We are going to be staying at a Bed and Breakfast, no hotels for us! So we look forward to showing you a new place. We are also going to have to stop by some of the antique shops and restaurants in Fredericksburg so we can tell you where to go when you stop by our plantation! We are very excited!
Sunday we will be back at the plantation to meet with a couple who will be getting married soon. Their family has ties to the area and to Belle Grove. We are excited to meet them! Then our daughter will arrive with her boyfriend and our plantation dog, Hurley! So more picture of Hurley when we get home!
This weekend is going to be wonderful! I don’t think I will sleep well tonight. The “electric charge” I get when we go to the plantation has already arrived and I know my heart is just going to jump when we see it as we across over the James Madison Bridge!
Have a great weekend and check Facebook for updates on our stay!
