What else is there to do at Shenandoah Caverns?

While you are waiting to explore Shenandoah Caverns in Virginia don't forget to check out Main Street of Yesteryear. Located in the same building where the caverns tour starts is a collection of antique department store window displays. Your nostalgic stroll will take you past several animated displays that have been restored to there original condition.

As you walk up the stairs to the second floor you are greeted by a trio of fuzzy bears that were once part of the Rose Bowl Parade.

Quoted from the Main Street of Yesteryear website:
"Visitors to the attraction can wind their way down our Main Street to see windows filled with fully restored antique displays. Experience the nostalgia of a three-ring circus of clowns, jugglers, twirling elephants, and ferocious tigers powered by 40 motors that generate the action under the big tent. 
Thrill to the sight of the Presidential Inaugural parade, complete with miniature military units, bands, and floats. Watch the fairy tale come to life as Cinderella goes to the ball." 

Since the displays are all free to view you might as well make a quick pass through Main Street of Yesteryear (but don't miss your tour of the caverns for it).

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.

Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
