Day 4 - Cross-Country

Today was another tough road-day, but we made great progress. After a leisurely morning in Alexandria, lunch and a loot-filled visit to my favorite sculptress Lisa Schumaier at the Torpedo Factory, we hit the road back south. After hitting our first traffic jam of the entire trip, we eventually made our way to horse country in the quaint and charming town of Middleburg, VA. After a too-quick stop, we hit the road again - destination Nashville.

Along the way, we made a detour to see the Natural Bridge and the spectacular Foamhenge - a replica of Stonehenge made out of, you guessed it, foam. Clearly this year's trip is a big departure from our big trip last December, which took us to the real Stonehenge. Still, it is no less memorable.

Alas, after a full-day of driving, we didn't make it to Nashville...yet - we're camping out in a hotel in Kingsport, TN until the wee morning hours.
