Enchanted Forest Park Moved

(Pictured Me at Enchanted Forest) I was sad to read that the final Enchanted Forest storybook theme park figures, castle, etc. will be taken down at the Enchanted Forest Shopping Center. That theme park was a big part of my childhood. Before I went to Walt Disney World in my 20’s, Enchanted Forest was the only theme park I knew. Our “Disneyland” here in Maryland opened in 1955, in Ellicott City. It closed in 1989. Read on to find out what will become of those retro pieces of our kiddie heritage. Plus see a few throwback pics from a visit to Enchanted Forest when I was a kid….

#TBT Blue Ridge Parkway VA: Amazing Views

During our recent visit to Charlottesville VA, we took a ride down the historic Blue Ridge Parkway. According to Wikipedia, “The Parkway, while not a “National Park,” has been the most visited unit of the National Park System every year since 1946″. An amazing drive, over 400 miles to North Carolina, where you really get close to nature. You actually travel along a 2 lane road, with no guard rails! It’s you and the mountains. Not for the faint of heart. I created a photo gallery for you. The pics will show you some history, some amazing views and famous landmarks. We drove about 10 miles down the Blue Ridge Parkway and experienced the breath-taking beauty. Take a look at my pics!
