We just spent a wonderful few days in Virginia. We picked up Andrew from his seasonal job as a Park Ranger at Prince William Forest Park (check out the July 5 Ranger program) and headed down to Williamsburg.
Busch Gardens is the greatest amusement park in the world. I have to say, though, that my legs don't take the twelve hour days walking around the park like they used to. Thank heavens for the Festhaus and Grogan's Pub. If anyone asks, all that beer was for medicinal purposes only. And I highly recommend Griffon, the new roller coaster. Awesome. Best ride ever.
After two days at the park, we checked out the Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville battlefields. We even stopped at the Stonewall Jackson Shrine. Yes, believe it or not, he has a shrine. I don't quite get that logic. Most people have memorials, not shrines. But then again, it's the south.
Anyway, we had a great time. See below for some photos of the trip.
