1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Traveling Little Visitor Swap Round 27 Gallery! on: June 12, 2018 05:31:16 AM
I'm so sorry to hear about Gracie, PFD  Cry


Echo hasn't seen much other than cardboard boxes for a while now... I've never moved outside of Virginia Beach (except to go to college, and even that was just in my car, no moving truck require) so this whole "box up everything you own in a way that will prevent it from getting damaged while driving through four states" thing is new and annoying. But hey, it's election day! So that's something new and different!

And for some reason I can't upload my photo right now. But it's on Echo's IG:

(I'll come back later and try again.)

Oh no, Averia, I heard about the flooding up there! Stay safe and dry  Cry

Thank you for the congratulations everyone  Grin He will be going into urology (and his residency match is the reason this might be my last LV swap from Virginia... he is moving to Pennsylvania in a few weeks and I'll be following after, but exactly when depends on whether I get a job earlier than anticipated).

Rey looks great in that headpiece... and a library, yay!

We haven't done much lately, what with packing up our apartment and the summer semester starting at work, but things will pick up again for Echo soon!

I've had a wicked cold (or something) for a week now so we haven't had much in the way of fun adventures, but Echo did get to go to my husband's graduation from med school!

I am just terrible at remembering to get lots of photos of my LVs at comicons, and this past weekend was no different. (This time I helped my friend run her table, which probably didn't help me remember!)

Nevertheless, I do have a shot of Echo helping me get ready to get into my knit scalemail Iron Man dress by testing out my gauntlets...



(The knit scalemail is what my friend was selling at her table, so I wore the dress and handed out her cards!)

As promised... Echo and I went to a library instruction conference at Radford University (it's kind of near Virginia Tech and Roanoke, so I drove 10 hours round trip, but at least the weather was okay and the traffic was... not as bad as it could have been).


Here is Radford's library, one of the many beautiful buildings on campus.


This is a shoe-in for one of the top 3 most beautiful photos I've ever taken of an LV! I like to stop at this scenic overlook of the Blue Ridge Mountains off of I-81 for a quick stretch and photo break whenever there isn't fog on the mountains. I think this photo looks like a fake backdrop for senior photos or something. But so pretty!

We haven't done much since we got home from our cross-Virginia trip, but Saturday we went to O'Connor Brewery in Norfolk for Cinco de Mayo:



(I promise we'll be doing something non-alcoholic later this week!)

Looks like Rey is having so much fun (and so much food!), I love it! The mini ice cream cone looks like the perfect little dessert, yum!

I love seeing that Darth is playing D&D too... I haven't taken a photo with Echo yet, but we play every Wednesday night, and as I write, I'm taking a little break from writing background and plans for when I take over as DM in July!

Alexampesandra I'm going to be in VA beach/Norfolk in July. Where is the Stonewall Jackson arm? I love going to see weird things like that.

It's in Locust Grove, about 3 hours from VB. The address is 36380 Constitution Hwy, Locust Grove VA (or you can look for directions to Ellwood Manor). You can get a tour of the house while you're there, but we just parked there and walked to the grave (in a big field to the right of the manor, through the garden and down a few steps).

If you're willing to venture a little further west in the state while you're at it (for some extra weird), check out Dinosaur Kingdom II, in Natural Bridge. Giant dinosaur sculptures in odd scenes, all created by a local artist. We couldn't go because it doesn't open for the season until May, but we did drive past it.

Also, while you're in VB, if you're here on July 7 you should check out Chalk the Walk! Our boardwalk is pavement, not wooden, so it's a big sidewalk chalk art event. And for weird stuff in VB, we have the Grace Sherwood statue (in commemoration of the woman who drowned while being tried as a witch in the Lynnhaven River), the Neptune statue at the Oceanfront is gorgeous, and Mount Trashmore is the highest point in Virginia Beach (and it's a landfill, but you wouldn't know based on the beautiful park sitting atop it!) I'm full of suggestions if you need more  Grin

We took a five-day trip around the state of Virginia (calling it my husband's farewell tour of the state, since he moves out of state in June and I don't follow until December)! I kept up with the trip on Echo's Instagram (@echothelv) but here are a few highlights:


The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond! We didn't have time to see everything.


Definitely the most unusual thing on the entire trip... the grave of Stonewall Jackson's left arm. (The rest of him is buried a few hours away in Lynchburg.)


Natural Chimneys is so beautiful and unusual! There are low mountains/hills all around but nothing quite like this, leftover from when there was sea covering all of Virginia.


Natural Bridge is also a huge, interesting geological feature. (Also a bit of a hike... Echo was glad I was doing all the walking for her!)


Whiskey flights at the Virginia Distillery Company


Huge Virginia "LOVE" made from hanging wine corks at Veritas Winery. (Get it? In vino, veritas? I thought it was clever.)

It was a really lovely trip, and now we're back to work and cleaning our apartment and packing and all that other normal adult life stuff.

I forgot to mention... Echo is on Instagram (@echothelv)!

Yesterday, things were a little quiet in the afternoon at work, so I showed her around our (truly awesome) library!

We played a game of giant chess:


And kicked back by the glass "fireplace" (which unfortunately doesn't provide warmth, because it was chilly yesterday!):
