Our travels, exploits, and adventures

Virginia Beach, VA to Greensboro, NC

July 16, 2011

This morning we woke up and got our mountain bikes down from the roof rack to bike to Fort Story Naval Base where the oldest government built lighthouse in the country resides.  From there, we drove the 6 hours to Greensboro, NC to visit some family.

Then we biked back to First Landing State Park, broke camp and packed up, and drove to Greensboro, NC

One quick detour on our way at a farm stand so Dondi could get some boiled peanuts

When we got to Greensboro, we had a great dinner and good times catching up with Victoria, Erin's cousin Will, and Aunt Vicky
