Our Virginia trip included Richmond, Lynchburg, Charlottesville,
Fredericksburg, and a lot of countryside as we drove this loop.
It was a beautiful time of year to do this drive, and we scraped
the edge of the Blue Ridge Parkway near Shenandoah which
we need to return and fully do some year. Here are some photos
of our drive, the charming towns, and a fall orchard stop. We did stop off at a nice restaurant Roanoke as well but I don’t have any pics of that.
We would pass through darling town after darling town ^^
Beautiful open roads! ^^
Constantly passing by orchards, vineyards, and farms ^^
In Charlottesville we pulled off the road to darling Carter Mountain Orchard ^^
Such a darling spot with beautiful views…
…and lots of pumpkins!
I found one very cute little pumpkin in the patch.
All things apple in the apple barn ^^
Apple butter, apple salsa, apple pie…
And best of all… apple cider doughnuts!
+ warm apple cider too.
We took in the views, polished off our doughnuts + cider, and continued onto DC.
Our incentive to get to DC quickly was knowing that our favorite Potbelly Sandwich
Shop would be there for us! It made Chase drive faster knowing we had it waiting :)
I love their simple toasted turkey swiss, but I really come
for the oreo shake + oatmeal chocolate chip cookie.
Those cookies are something special!
We love you, beautiful Virginia!
