Day 5: Charleston, WV
Posted: July 2, 2010 | Author: Mika | Filed under: Gulliver's Travels |
This morning we had a leisurely start and didn’t even leave the hotel until check-out time. We had 4 hours of driving from Louisville to Charleston, so most of our trip was lengthwise through Kentucky.
We saw some quaintly dilapidated old barns...
...but mostly it was full of very green trees.
Welcome to West Virginia! You may have guessed that the Romgi was the passenger in charge of picture-taking this time.
West Virigina looked kind of like this.
With places like this (Tudor's Biscuit World).
We got to see the capitol building. (Yes, I double checked; the capital is the city, the capitol is the building.) Shiny!
The Bwun was kind enough to sleep for over 3 hours of our drive.
When he finally woke up, we were less than 15 minutes away from our hotel. And he was in a good mood. Thank you, the Bwun!
It was still afternoon when we checked in, but I was ready for food (thank you, the Oeuf). Although we’ve been trying to eat at local restaurants, what sounded good was Cracker Barrel. And oh, it was exactly what I wanted. French toast, biscuits and gravy, and the best hash browns I’ve eaten outside my grandpa’s cabin. Thank you, West Virginia!
Love the Bwun pics!
Love the trip reports. It’s like being with you, without the long drive!
Somehow, you managed to make the idea of a cross-country road-trip with a one-year-old sound like fun. I’m glad you made it to your destination safely.
