Click 365: All things Old are New Again

Today we went to a wonderful antique store in an old town that is smack dab in the middle of a newer town. We love this little place. Of course we found a gift for someone. We had a great time poking around in the store. Then we drove around and explored Ft Monroe. Last time we visited there is was still an active Army post. It is now a National Park.  It was quiet and very different on this visit.



 Above are the windows of the store we visited today.
Above is a sneak peak at the "gift" for someone. Of course its blurry and hard to recognize.....
 If you look close you can see a flag flying. The flag is 20 by 38 ft. That is Ft Wool.  http://www.dailypress.com/news/photos/dp-fort-wool-hampton-va-20130104,0,5842028.photogallery

 The rest of the photos are the actual Ft Monroe.
 Moat and tunnel entrance.

 Another tunnel entrance and a cool narrow door.

 This church  is beautiful.

 The rampart is an entrance to the top of the wall and the entire walk way around the wall is a park.
 Moat again and WW1 building.

Below photos: And while hubby and I were out on an adventure our gals were on their own adventure. They went to our favorite Thrift Store outlet where clothes are sold by the pound. I gave the gals some cash and ask them to find something nice for me. 10 tops....5 bucks! One still has its price tag on it. ( $ 25.00!) It had been quite a while since I have gotten any new to me clothes. ( except for the pants I had to buy because I gained weight :(  ) I immediately went through my closet and pulled worn out clothes to make room for these beautiful shirts.


  1. What great photos. Looks like a beautiful and fun place to visit. And what a great find with all those shirts. They looks so pretty.

  2. Looks like a fun time! I'd really like to visit Virginia one day, when money allows.
