This Journey Concludes

After exiting Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park we headed to nearby Hume, Virginia where Harvest Host Desert Rose Ranch and Winery provided our picturesque overnight accommodation. The wine was good too!

Historic Mount Bleak House at Sky Meadows State Park in Paris, VA.

Absolutely love Dogwood blossoms!

Often towards the end of our journeys there comes a point when I am ready to be done with it. I have no interest in seeking out interesting new destinations or diversions, I just want to get home. This time that occurred right after we visited Al’s niece Jodi, her husband Rick, and daughter Miranda in Mt. Airy, MD.

We began our drive through Pennsylvania on scenic back roads as usual, but after a few hours we both decided it was time to make tracks on Interstate highways through the rest of Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.

Lunch break next to this bridge over the Susquehanna River in Columbia, Pennsylvania.

Home Sweet Home somewhere on a Pennsylvania back road.

 And so ends my narrative of an enjoyable six month exploration of the Southeastern United States.


  1. Thank you for sharing. Exquisite. Happy homecoming. 🙂

  2. We have really enjoyed traveling with you by way of all your posts. (And also meeting up for those few days in the ‘glades.) Great stories and pictures, thanks for sharing. Travel is such an all consuming experience and it comes with its own unique psychology. The end of a long good trip is such a mix of emotions. Hope you make a smooth transition to home life. We’ve read every one of your posts and ogled your pictures. You have such a great photographer’s eye. Thanks again for sharing. We look forward to your Europe trip!



    • Thank you for following and all your kind comments. Hope to meet up with you again soon. Surely it is time you came back to the East Coast!

  3. I shall go into withdrawal. You need to keep sending posts on Home with haRVy.

    Congratulations on a safe trip.
    Photos are even nicer on my new big fire.
    Love dogwood also and Palomar has some, but not Eastern quality.

  5. Thank you
    I enjoyed it all.
