Day five: forgot to take stills cos I was constantly trying to film all the beautiful wild birds we passed (I'm convinced there was a bald eagle. I have no evidence, so we're just gonna go with it and say we saw one). We passed through the Shenandoah valley and had planned on doing the skyline drive through the national park to see some bears and more eagles (that's right, more..) but the park was closed due to recent heavy snow. We'd been planning on staying the night and visiting a local vineyard but we decided to continue the journey on to Richmond (see that, mother? I took the sensible, sober option). Richmond had a great industrial chic vibe about it and though we didn't stay too long I'd definitely head back in the future. Oh yeah, also - giant cigarette sculpture. Stay classy, Richmond.
Next stop: Raleigh.
