We leave our morning breakfast nook, our reading time, and and all the little things we had while here with Bill and Carol: the Saturday market & breakfast at the bakery, the local bike trail, Carol's water aerobics (Splash Class), and Bill's wealth of knowledge. Did you know that Virginia is the only state where you live in either a *city* or a *county* but not both? A town that has a certain number (we think 5000) of residents in a county can apply to be a city. If they become a city, they are no longer a part of the county. I don't know, but I think it has something to do with tax advantages??
Our time in and around Lynchburg was exceptionally special because of Carol and Bill, and that they could be with us for so much of the local adventure made it that much better. The history, the sights and countryside, the hard cider stop, baseball from the skybox, the biking and the market breakfast are but a few of the things that filled our days, and they, the special two, filled our hearts. At least as we leave their town, we take them with us -- or rather they take us -- to their daughter's home on the lake for their family reunion. So ---- we're not done yet!
