Bristol’s Rhythm and Roots Reunion is a music and arts festival held on State Street in Bristol. The fun fact about State Street is that one side of the street is Virginia and the other side is Tennessee so you can straddle the double yellow lines and be in two places at once. We enjoy Rhythm and Roots for the food trucks, live bands, and art that you may not find anywhere else. Continue reading “RHYTHM AND ROOTS REUNION”
Well folks, I think it’s safe to say Christopher is now “kayak pregnant” and I expect him to deliver a kayak in our garage any day now. The idea was conceived (see what I did there?) one Saturday in July when we spent part of the day out on the river in Mendota, Virginia. Adventure Mendota was recommended to me by a few of my coworkers and it was definitely worth the trip and $33 each. When you think of the cost of a single kayak it’s such a great price. The team at Adventure Mendota takes care of you from start to finish making the entire experience an exercise in relaxation more than actual exercise. Chris said you could honestly just float down the river without really having to paddle. Don’t let me fool you, though! There were a couple spots along the river where you had to watch out for rocks or you could get stuck. I was so distracted by the scenery that I might have gotten stuck a time or two but it was easy to push myself out and back on the river to cruise!
