We left Richmond, Va. on July 27th for Family Night at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wi. The idea was to take our time since neither of us had been out that way.
1st scenic stop was in Covington, Va. at the Humpback Covered Bridge. It’s one of the few remaining covered bridges in the US that was built higher in the middle than on either end; hence the name “humpback”. It opened in 1857 and the total length is 108′.
When we got into West Virginia around lunch time time we stopped off at a diner in White Sulpher Springs. The Wahgwaan Diner. It’s owned by a Jamaican family. We both had the blackened fish sandwich. Excellent!
It started raining a little by the time we were done.
We spent the first night in the parking lot of the Tamarack Best of West Virginia in Beckley. This is a large arts and crafts facility that sells products made by WV artist and craftsmen. They have resident artisan studios and hold craft demonstrations on most weekends from Spring through the Fall. There’s large parking lots so there were lots of other RVs and buses (I think they dropped off the boy scouts at the motel next door) and parked there for the night.
Tomorrow, on to Kentucky.
