I met my husband here while attending college. We've lived here 24 years (minus a 5 year hiatus in Orange Co). I grew up in Gloucester, VA (just across the river from Yorktown/Williamsburg). I love the mountains but really miss the sand and sea.
You are not too far from me.
Are you ever down this way?
I grew up south of Richmond and fell in love with the Valley while I attended JMU. So I convinced my husband that we should move out here.
We've been in this area since 1993.
I've been to Gloucester once - to Brent & Becky's to check out their bulbs!
I don't go to Lynchburg often, but I do like visiting the A C Moore store. It's a little closer to me than the Roanoke store, but the travel time is about the same.
Do you and your husband ever eat at The Depot Grille? They have a sister location near us. They have THE BEST ribs. Your location has an entrée they don't offer here - Blue Ridge Chicken. It's pretty awesome.
