Happy Birthday, Betty! I wish you a wonderful year ahead! :)

 

By the way, you can now ride NJ Transit for half price. Although somehow I don't think that's on your bucket list! :P

Thank you, everyone! :)

 

I went to Alexandria, VA, planning a quiet short getaway weekend (good guess, Jim!) and it turned out that, unknown to me, it was one of their busiest days of the year, with a Scottish Christmas walk and a lighted boat parade! So I went to both, and also got to see the southbound Silver Star on its way through as a special extra treat.

 

Unfortunately, doing all of that left no time to fit in zip lining (thank goodness!) :P
