    West Virginia

    October 2, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Erinnerungen an ein Lied:

    Almost heaven, West Virginia
    Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River
    Life is old there, older than the trees
    Younger than the mountains, blowing like a breeze...

    Seneca Rocks und die weiten von West Virginia

    Harpers Ferry

    August 11, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    A quick stop at Harper Ferry National Historic Park. This is where the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers meet in a V. Robert Harper started a ferry across here in 1747.

    We saw the US Armory that George Washington commissioned. Here in the 1800’s many innovations fueled the Industrial Revolution. Most notable was the invention of manufacturing with interchangeable parts.

    In 1859, John Brown, an abolitionist, seized the armory. While the raid failed and Brown executed, attention was now on slavery and this helped push the nation into civil war. The raid was a symbol of freedom.

    November 23, 2017 in the United States ⋅ 🌫 2 °C

    We drove to Parkersburg, West Virginia for American Thanksgiving with the Northrup’s. Nora and John flew in from Brooklyn to be with John’s parents and relatives for the holiday.

    It was wonderful to be included in the whole tradition. The US holiday was about family, friendship, eating massive amounts of great traditional food, playing old fashioned games, and just being together.

    We (Tarjei, Caty, Jabba & Boots) stayed at the Blennerhassett Hotel which is a grand old downtown beauty. It was sumptuous and welcoming with multiple gorgeous Christmas Trees in the lobby. There was a welcome sign for the dogs, with complementary biscuits. We were amazed that the staff was so dog-friendly in such an elegant hotel.

    On Thursday morning in City Park there was a 3 mile race called the Turkey Trot. There were children & adults, runners & walkers, strollers & dogs of all sizes and shapes. It was quite exciting and a bit intimidating for Jabba and Boots — particularly when a pair of huge Great Danes towered over them and kept trying to smell their foreign fragrance. After the Turkey Trot we had brunch at the Northrup’s — delicious — including homemade cheese grits.

    The dinner on Thursday evening was held at the Blennerhassett — a feast with turkey, beef, salmon, and all the accompaniments (including lots of wine). Multiple cousins from age 1 to 35 got to renew their friendships. It was so much fun to see the small children running and giggling and tumbling, then getting up to do it again. After dinner, the 20 - 35 year olds went bowling while the rest of us staggered off to bed.

    On Friday morning we had a nice little hike with Nora and John, then said goodbye.

    Next stop: CANADA!

    Oglebay Lights

    December 31, 2016 in the United States ⋅ 🌫 3 °C

    Our hosts took us across to a place in West Virginia to see the most amazing location for Xmas lights. This golf course country club had the entire grounds covered in Xmas decorations and displays. It took about 30 min to drive around it all.

    Wow.... we made it!!!!
    After an 8 hours flight and 4 hours drive, we finally made it to our last destination of the day.
    Hello West-Virginia.
    It's our very first time to be in West-Virginia!
    So exciting!!! 😁

    Our 4 hours drive was very scary though.
    We were caught in a hail storm and heavy rains.
    It was so bad we were on the brink of turning back. Fortunately the weather cleared and we made it to Morgantown!
