I Want My $5 Back

We waited in traffic for a bit over an hour to get into the Rennasaince Festival that I threatened to write about. It was worth it and I will go again next year.

Today I sat in a twelve mile back up for almost an hour to get where??

Delaware!! And they charged me $5 to get in. You aint even in there that long. There are no hills or curves that give you a thrill and there is no booth at the other end givng you your deposit back for not stealing anything. No wonder Washington snuck across the river at night. He didnt have an hour to kill and between him and the crew they couldnt come up with $5 cause they spent it on $2 bottles of water at the welcome center.

That said it was a long day. We started work today at 7 and finished the scans in Richmond VA. at noon. I packed my truck and headed back to the hotel to freshen up. Then I headed out to eastern PA for a 5 hour tour. When I hit DC I knew how Gilligan and the skipper felt when they hit the storm. I knew DC would be jammed up but I thought it would be a bit better due to it being Sunday. I wonder if anyone was left in the Northeast this weekend cause they were all headed home tonight.

My GPS said I would get here atbout seven. OK, She should have been a weather girl instead. I got in at 9. I am a it tired and it is another early 12 hour day tomorrow.

I wanted to share some pics but I didnt see any great color and driving thru DC was too hectic to shoot pics. I love my bloggers but I cant do but so much.

SO here are what I got.

Heres some color and a Denny's Pic for you know who you are. LOL





Here is the Air Force Memorial in Washington. There are better pics online.



Here is the Washington Monument with a little Orange and Yellow added in for color. LOL

I agree with bunny. CA traffic trumps Delaware and DC traffic, for sure. lol!

I've always wanted to go to the Ren Faire...and, of course, never have even though it's less than 10 miles away.

A Renaissance Fair sounds like fun. Was there a lot of food? As you know, I like food. Thanks for thinking of you know who. LOL!
