Hi Everybody! I have a “double” post today – two different memories in one blog post. It’s 9/11 and a lot of us will NEVER forget that day in history or where we were when life as we knew it changed…………..and back in September of 2011, my Mom wrote a blog post recalling where she and Dad were on 9/11 so I thought I’d give you the link to that post and you can read it for yourselves. It’s quite a story. Just CLICK HERE then come back so you can read all about my Mom and Dad’s NEW memory!
My parents just celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary by taking a short trip only an hour or so away from here to a town called Luray, Virginia. Luray is home to some absolutely gorgeous underground caverns called (surprise surprise) Luray Caverns. Here’s a link for the complex at the caverns – it’s got an antique car museum, a boxwood maze, a fun “ropes” course for kids, a reconstructed partial village of the day, and of course the caverns themselves (CLICK HERE). The caverns were discovered in 1878 by five men and they had no idea when they discovered the entrance what incredible beauty they would find while exploring the caves. The oldest formation inside the caves is said to be 400,000,000 years old. My Mom and Dad had been to the caverns many years ago but had forgotten how amazing they were. Here are some of the photos my Mom took!
The guided hike they took was 1.5 miles long and took over an hour……….it was a fun addition to their anniversary trip.
So – an OLD memory and a NEW memory…………..both in today’s blog. Every day is another chance to make a memory so get out there and make one!!!
