I’m anxiously awaiting this coming weekend.

On Friday evening I’ll pick up Alys at Dulles International Airport, and we’ll head into DC to meet up with Boomdee.

The next day, we’ll get to spend time with Julia and Lisa, and maybe even Stacy.  What fun this will be!  It’ll be a quick 36 hours for me, but well worth the drive.

This past weekend though, I was in Roanoke to photograph a political event.  When that task was completed, I was able to spend a few moments outside enjoying the grounds of the Hotel Roanoke.  First built in 1882, renovated in the 1930s, and finally restored,  remodeled, and re-opened in 1995, the Hotel Roanoke is now a gorgeous and historic destination for both vacation and business.

The Market Square Pedestrian Walkway allows guests to walk from the hotel, over the train tracks, and down to the many shops and restaurants in the downtown market square.

I’m sorry that I wasn’t able to visit any of you this past weekend.  I’ll look forward to catching up when I get back home.

And I can’t wait to share photos of the Old Town Alexandria blogger gathering!

  1. All those pink blossoms are gorgeous! I can hardly wait for some colour to spring out here too.
    I hope you enjoy your weekend with friends. Those are simply the best!!

  2. Beautiful images Laurie 🙂 And after you’re done with those two crazy kids (Alys and Boomdee) they are on their way up to The Big Apple where I will finally get to meet them.

  3. The hotel has a distinct European flair. Love it and the cheery colored blossoms with sunshine lift my spirits right up. The fact that you are spending the weekend with some of my favorite people has me a little green though. 🙂 Looking forward to the photos. Enjoy, enjoy! Hugs all around.

Because Boomdee dared me: Lay a little sugar on me :-)
