We like our vacations. I need them because that is the only time I take a break from the Internet & writing. In a normal Summer we would, at a minimum, have gone to Acadia for a few days. Well, 2020 has not been a normal year. Though my 14-year old daughter & I did do a 18-hour (1-day) trip to Acadia we did not spend a night there. As September approached we — yes, the 14-year old & I — knew we had to go on a proper vacation.

I had promised to take her to the Biltmore. She likes mansions. So, that is what we did. But, we spent 5-nights, at the Skyland Resort, in Shenandoah National Park & drove down to the Biltmore, in a ‘day’, from there. That was a mistake. LONG drive. Didn’t get much time at the Biltmore. So, we have to go back again! Not this year. 1,250-miles of driving (albeit in a rather fancy rental car).

Well, I will start posting pictures shortly.

SMILE. We had fun.
