The second day of our journey started out nicely, with the sun shining and the birds chirping. Despite the sunny start, our departure from Asheville in the early morning was prelude to a full day in the car. Despite our coin toss dictating a detour to Orlando, we drove east towards Raleigh, where we stopped to have lunch with my dad, step-mom and bro, which was one of the highlights of our trip.
After lunch, we decided that rather than hit the rainy Outer Banks we'd head north to D.C. We arrived in Alexandria at around 8 p.m. and that was our day. Day 3 will be better!
