Abindon, southern Virginia

From Maine we flew to southern Virgina.  The four of us picked up a wild hire car at Tri Cities Airport and set off to do a number of interviews before we split up for a few days well deserved R & R.

We headed from the airport to a small town called Abingdon and dropped our cases off at a motel on the edge of town. A friendly southern accent at the motel check in reinforced the fact that we had traveled a long way by plane and with little delay we gathered up our maps and 'Dave' our GPS man and set off to find something to eat before going to the Wednesday afternoon farmers market.

Road signs like this may be alright for the natives but we were really glad that we had Dave to reassure us we were heading in the right direction!

Finding really good coffee can also be a challenge while travelling, however this little cafe and bookshop provided us with what we needed.
