We left Stuart (southwest Virginia), and were very happy with our short stay. There was ample parking behind the hotel. It also seemed a very nice little town, though we didn't explore it fully as we were eager to get on with our journey.
Here are a few other photos taken that morning.
There was a solitary duck enjoying its swim. I am not familiar with this kind, and I had no luck finding any identification online.
He/she is a beauty!
I would like to thank you all for visiting and looking, and leaving comments. As our days are long and by the time we get to our hotel in the evening we are a wee bit tired, I am not able to read and get to publish your comments very quickly right now, but I will catch up with you as soon as I am able.
