Oh, it was so good to arrive at our next destination...plus, Dave and I were both officially on vacation. We traveled about 250 miles from Pipestem and arrived at Creekside Campground in Edinburg, VA early Friday evening. There were only a couple of other RVers here so we had a good selection of sites to choose from. We had originally reserved site 13, which is one of their larger 'super sites', but they told us it had flooded and would be very muddy. We picked site 17 instead which was nice. It was creekside...most are...and full hook-up.
Kevin, who helped us get situated said that they had had a couple of floods in the past. In the early 90's he said the area flooded so bad that they lost everything! They rebuilt, then fairly recently they had more flooding, but not near as bad. I sure am glad they didn't have any bad storms while we were there!
After setting up camp we were starving and it had gotten late fast so we headed over to a local Italian restaurant right across the creek from us. Sal's Italian Bistro was really good! We both got the lasagna and we probably should have shared one! Look how big the portions were! I had to take half of mine to go!
Ok, it was too dark when we arrived on Friday to take any photos, but here is our site. Number 17. Plus some photos of other sites and the creek.

We headed towards downtown Luray, here are a few countryside photos along the way:
Luray is such a cute town! We parked and checked out the shops and local restaurants.
|This dog was in one of the shops we went in...so pretty!|
|I love the art work on old advertising signs and labels.|
With full bellies we headed out to Luray Caverns. What a cool place. Beautiful land and buildings before you ever get to the caverns!
|Another funny sign Dave wanted a photo of!|
|This formation is called scrambled eggs!|
|A tribute to honor veterans|
Situated along the ridge of the Blue Ridge Mountains is 105 miles of breathtaking scenery which is the Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park. The things that God created just for our enjoyment absolutely overwhelms me!
|Visitor Center and Gift Shop where we purchased our National Parks Edition of Yahtzee!|
|Dinner at Pollock Dining Room in the Skyland Resort. Turkey and potatoes, plus Dave got the blackberry ice cream pie-yum!!|
|Skyland Resort Tavern|
I could not stop taking photos of the sunset because it was just so breathtaking! Well, we finally tore ourselves away making a promise to come back one Fall to see the leaf color. We headed back to our home away from home and rested up for our next adventure!
Sunday morning Dave was finishing a few things up so I walked around and snapped a few more photos in and around our RV campground before we headed out for our next destination.
