Flashback Friday

I wanted to share my Memorial Day Weekend. I had a blast and wish I could go back...hence Flashback Friday! Here's a small peek into my weekend....

First there was the Caribbean Festival at Linganore Winecellars. So my bf told me this is what we were doing for the day and I was like "Cool. I love reggae and I'm not opposed to testing different wines out, so this should be a nice little gathering attend." Little did we both know! This event/winery was in Mt. Airy, Maryland. Neither of us had ever been there, so we didn't know what to expect. Once we got off of the highway we had about a 20 mile drive of nothing but extreme winding roads and extreme hills. We were very close to West Virginia and could even see some mountains in the background. It was very rural yet so beautiful. In North Carolina there are plenty of roads that are draped by very vast fields, farm land, and trees as far as the eyes can see...but this was just different. Even though I'm a small city girl that craves the big city life...I thoroughly enjoy the countryside. Since the event was in such a secluded section of the world, I was thinking that it would be more of a small intimate gathering...WRONG! There had to be at least 50,000 people there (AT LEAST!!). I was unable to capture the masses in photograph, but there were cars on every hillside! I was amazed to see that so many people navigated their way through winding road after winding road to find that tiny corner of the world, but it was definitely worth it!

The next day, since it was Memorial Day weekend, we thought it was fitting to visit the monuments. Here's the route we took around the National Mall and the monuments/sites we visited.

It was such a beautiful day so we did a good amount of walking! Here's a small compilation of the walk....

During that walk we made sure to visit some of the war monuments. Of course I had to get another picture of the NC column at the World War II Monument. It was decorated so nicely, I couldn't resist! Here's that compilation:

I hope you enjoyed the peek. I see a variety of interesting activities to come in my stay tuned!!

  1. I know so many people that attended this festival and others on the opposite coast and it made me sad that we don't have anything like that out here. It ALMOST made me want to drive out there! LOL!

    Glad you had a wonderful holiday!

    1. It definitely opened my eyes to things that are going on that I would never realize were so big! Try the Living Social website, you'd be surprised at the results. Thanks for stopping by!!
