Have you ever had a day when nothing works? Today was one of those days. We drove around Stafford following signs.

First we found The Stafford Civil War Park. This was not a park but the area where the Union stayed the winter after their Fredericksburg defeat. It was amazing that the location is still known. I’m not showing you any photos because there really were none. The various military sites were now forest. Maybe someday they will do a recreation of the time.

Another was an historical quarry. There were trails on this one where you could see the quarry, but it was in the 90s with mega humidity. Neither of us wanted to walk it.

We did find a small cemetery on a street corner. No name or fencing, just grave stones. I did take photos of that because it is so odd. I’ll show you that tomorrow.

Since we got a late start, (going to the pancake breakfast and doing laundry) I didn’t get my pedicure, but I did schedule one for tomorrow morning.

So here I am sitting in the trailer wondering just where the day went. I guess we just relaxed. Richard has gone off star gazing, and Gem and I are going to take our evening walk. These days happen, especially when you’ve been running crazy seeing the sites. Sometimes a break is nice.

So maybe today did work!
