Unfortunately Monday we needed to head back for home however not before going on a side trip. We drove through Bedford, VA where the D Day Memorial is located. It is on my bucket list to visit as it is about 20 minutes away from the lake house. There were lots of people attending the Memorial Day festivities.
We drove to Peaks of Otter and hiked Sharp Top Mountain. A former high school teacher hiked this mountain and gave me the idea to do it myself. My wife met this women a few years ago and was not very impressed with her selection of retirement activities.
The trail started off pretty easy

The view from the bottom, there were lots of motorcycles enjoying the Blue Ridge Parkway.
