we never did get as far as Skyline Drive but we did go to the Manassas Civil War Battlefield. I will share a few photos below and do a longer post later. There isn't a lot of time before we go out. It was a pretty day as you can see below, and the sun is shining so need to get out and enjoy it. We have a couple of errands to run before we head towards the mountains.
We stopped at the Visitor Center first.
Below you can see Gregg and Bill walking over to Stonewall Jackson's Statue....
and here they are right next to it.
Jackson is sitting on his beloved war horse Little Sorrel.

I couldn't help but stop and say hello to this little fellow. He was lovely and after checking with his owner this sweet little dog was very friendly and enjoyed a bit of fussing. I had taken this photo far off and cropped it.
We ended up having my birthday meal at a Thai restaurant relatively close to home. It was a very nice way to end the day, and I was happy to have Bill there to help celebrate. One of the staff took our photo.
