Change of Scenery

Who doesn’t love a break and a change of scenery?  I certainly do.  So it was with great enjoyment that we packed the car to head out of town for an extended weekend.  We were bound for Kitty Hawk and the Outer Banks of North Carolina, but along the way we planned many stops.

Amid clouded skies and a mild rain we made our way into southern Maryland to visit the homestead and plantation site of Thomas Stone, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence.  Then we went on into the Northern Neck of Virginia to visit the birthplace of George Washington.  Both were beautiful sites filled with history and an amazing feeling of being connected to the past.

We stayed overnight in Virginia Beach and spent Sunday with friends who invited us to their child’s baptism.  It was a unique experience as the baptism took place aboard the father’s Naval ship.  We felt very privileged to be a part of the celebration.

Traveling on, we made our way to Nag’s Head where we would stay two nights while exploring the beauty, diversity and history of the Outer Banks.

What a grace it was just to have this change of scenery.  As I unpack these experiences and reflect on the four days, I’ll be sharing more of our adventures.

Where have you seen grace today?
