We just got home from a week in Roanoke visiting our youngest. On the way into town, I was able to catch a few photos of the town through the rain...

The entire cold week it just rained and rained. We didn't do anything downtown, but we did try out a couple of new restaurants near Katie's, and on her day off we went to a few antique stores in nearby Salem. Pretty low-key, but that's the fun of it...just hanging with loved ones...

She and her Dad share a love of looking at used cars for sale on the net. Hard to tell by this picture, but they are enjoying themselves...
Lee and I left early Saturday morning shortly after Katie left for work. We were greeted by this glorious view upon opening the blinds....

All the bad weather had ended by Saturday, and we had a very beautiful sunny day for traveling back home.
I must note the terrible news of all that bad weather bringing a terrible burst of tornadoes which hit nearby towns and others across Virginia with great destruction. Our hearts ache for the victims, and I hope you join us in lifting prayers for the folks affected and left to pull their lives and communities back together.
Hope you enjoyed this little travelogue. I just wish I had been able to take more pictures, especially of the charming restaurants we enjoyed. Our next visit, for sure.
So, until next time....... Peace and Blessings
