as we hurried to the backside of the building (away from the street) where all the neighbors in the four "upstairs" apartment units in the building have created a lovely outdoor living area
It was slow going and we felt like taking a break at this rest stop exit but we refrained. After all we had only been on the road for over one hour in rush hour traffic to go less than fifteen miles.
Finally we could see part of the sign for Potomac Mills----the largest shopping center in the state of Virginia and it is only two miles from Jeanine's new condo. (More tourists go here than to George Washington's Mount Vernon so that is why it is the number 1 tourist attraction in the whole state of Virginia. A place where you can shop till you drop!)
Jeanine's condo was looking really good and the various rooms were just waiting for all that stuff that Jeanine was having brought thru the both the front and back doors. Jack and I left at 8:45 P.M. after a mad meal of Wegman's pizza amidst the moving boxes and headed via the Prince William Parkway and #66 to our home across the county in Haymarket, VA.
Look at the photo above and see the time----8:59 P.M.! That boiling hot sun was finally getting ready to set on one of the longest days of the year. Wow! What a hot and humid day for a move!
Yes, by the time we arrived home the sun had set and we were ready for a good long night's sleep.
