[photo] Chris and I snuck off for a 30-hour vacation Sunday and into Monday. Sunday was beautiful as we drove to Hancock, MD along the C&O Canal for a nice lunch, before driving over to Berkeley Springs, WV for dinner and cocktails, and then heading out to the "retro" Cacapon State Park Lodge near this lake.

The weather turned gray Monday, but there was still some beautiful foliage to see. Drove to Shepherdstown, WV for a walk around the old town and had a nice lunch across from the college, then back through MD and into PA over the mountains. It was a nice break, and our first real getaway since the season began.
