A Weekend in Virginia with My Granddaughter

On February 23, 2015

Just back from Charlottesville, Virginia, where I visited my granddaughter Kendall, a freshman at the University of Virginia. Snow snow snow there all day Saturday – lovely, but tough going. We decided against a visit to Monticello (next time!) and the official tour of the university was cancelled, so I got an unofficial tour from Kendall. Thomas Jefferson’s “Academical Village” is beautiful. Kendall’s aunt, my younger daughter Jen Pahlka (founder and CEO of Code for America) came down Saturday night after a speech in DC. By that time the snow had turned to sleet and the roads were ice-covered, so we had a perilous trip from the train station after picking her up! But it was great to be able to have dinner and then breakfast the next day with both of them. My journey home on Amtrak featured snowy fields and forests under blue skies all the way up the NE Corridor. I love train travel!
